Trouble creating SSL cert for nginx

May 13, 2014 942 views
I'm sure I'm doing something stupid here. But I followed the guidance from DO to create an SSL cert for my nginx-hosted domain: But whenever I fire up nginx, anything served off of port 80 is fine, but when it hit the same URL with HTTPS, nothing. No errors. Nothing in the logs. Just nothing. Here is the snippet I'm using. Certs are definitely on the path mentioned. Any idea what I could be doing wrong? server { listen 443; server_name; root /var/www/; index index.html index.php; ssl on; ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/ssl/server.crt; ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/server.key; }

Are you running any kind of firewall? Make sure that port 443 is actually open. You can run
netstat -plunt
to see what ports are open.
