I have two droplets, one hosting backend servers (server2) and the other is an edge server (server1) that hosts front end client and edge servers.
On both servers I have NGINX managing proxying and SSL certificates.
I am looking for advice on configure edge servers on server1 that are connecting to backend servers on server2 using the private IP, specifically, does/should one use
https for initiating api call to backend server or will
http suffice (doesn’t feel right). If
https is recommended then how does one setup SSL certificate as a reachable domain name is required.
Also, can any servers outside of my servers connect to any of my servers via their private IP address.
I am happy to read more, just didn’t find much on the topic so thought I would reach out to the community.
