SSL Certificate on Ubuntu 12.10 (Rails Set Up)

I’m having trouble getting the SSL Certificate to work and have https:// display on the domain I’m hosting on Ubuntu 12.10 using the rails set up.

I’ve followed this tutorial a few times: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-create-a-ssl-certificate-on-nginx-for-ubuntu-12-04

I’ve been making sure to do everything right but I’m having no luck. I’m assuming it has to do with the differing Ubuntu versions. I wish I had more to offer on this question, but do any of you have any thoughts on what might not be working?
