Vesta attempting accessing an non https site with https redirects to different domain

Nginx Apache

SO I have this strange issue, I have https and http site on my droplet running vesta (apache+Nginx) on Ubuntu 12.04
If a user attempts to access a http site by using https, they get redirected to the first https site on my droplet. Somewhat confused by this behaviour...

Did you check the documentations? VESTA DOCU
Also did you check your nginx VHOST? please post it with some more information so we can help you.

  • I cant seem to find an nginx VHOST..
    I had a look through the documentation, but nothing leapt out; I did set the server up by following the docs. I dont want to force ssl on all domains, I require a mix of SSL and non=SSL sites

    The sites available under nginx looks like this:

    ##
    # You should look at the following URL's in order to grasp a solid understanding
    # of Nginx configuration files in order to fully unleash the power of Nginx.
    # http://wiki.nginx.org/Pitfalls
    # http://wiki.nginx.org/QuickStart
    # http://wiki.nginx.org/Configuration
    #
    # Generally, you will want to move this file somewhere, and start with a clean
    # file but keep this around for reference. Or just disable in sites-enabled.
    #
    # Please see /usr/share/doc/nginx-doc/examples/ for more detailed examples.

    # Default server configuration
    #
    server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        listen [::]:80 default_server;
    
        # SSL configuration
        #
        # listen 443 ssl default_server;
        # listen [::]:443 ssl default_server;
        #
        # Note: You should disable gzip for SSL traffic.
        # See: https://bugs.debian.org/773332
        #
        # Read up on ssl_ciphers to ensure a secure configuration.
        # See: https://bugs.debian.org/765782
        #
        # Self signed certs generated by the ssl-cert package
        # Don't use them in a production server!
        #
        # include snippets/snakeoil.conf;
    
        root /var/www/html;
    
        # Add index.php to the list if you are using PHP
        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;
    
        server_name _;
    
        location / {
            # First attempt to serve request as file, then
            # as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
            try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
        }
    
        # pass the PHP scripts to FastCGI server listening on 127.0.0.1:9000
        #
        #location ~ \.php$ {
        #   include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;
        #
        #   # With php5-cgi alone:
        #   fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
        #   # With php5-fpm:
        #   fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
        #}
    
        # deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
        # concurs with nginx's one
        #
        #location ~ /\.ht {
        #   deny all;
        #}
    }
    
    
    # Virtual Host configuration for example.com
    #
    # You can move that to a different file under sites-available/ and symlink that
    # to sites-enabled/ to enable it.
    #
    #server {
    #   listen 80;
    #   listen [::]:80;
    #
    #   server_name example.com;
    #
    #   root /var/www/example.com;
    #   index index.html;
    #
    #   location / {
    #       try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
    #   }
    #}
