Install SSL Certificate on NGINX

Installing an SSL Certificate on the modern (> 0.7.14) nginx platform is quite easy.
  1. Locate the server block for your website.
  2. Add a listen directive for your secure port and add the ssl
  3. Add the ssl_certificate directive; the parameter is the full path to the nginx format of your certificate.
  4. Add the ssl_certificate_key directive; the parameter is the full path to your private key.

 

Example:

server {
listen                               80;
listen                               443 ssl;
server_name                   www.yourdomain.com;
ssl_certificate                /path/to/www_yourdomain_com.crt;
ssl_certificate_key        /path/to/www_yourdomain_com.key;
}
