Hello, I found many pages describing how to use Certbot for an NGINX webserver. But I can not find anything about how to install an SSL certificate on a Reversed Proxy server (running NGINX). The NGINX Proxy runs on Debian 10 (on a Raspberry 4). Behind the proxy are several Wordpress servers (also on NGINX) running smoothly behind the proxy (without SSL).
The proxy itself should have a domain name to get a certificate. On the other hand it’s a proxy (not running a webserver). So should I choose a domain of one of the Wordpress servers behind the proxy? Or should I give the proxy a ‘dummy’ domain name, pointing only to the IP address
Please help. I don’t understand how I can set up secure Wordpress servers behind my proxy. I understand that if the client-proxy connection is secure all servers behind the proxy also show up as an SSL connection. I hope that’s true, but I still remain with the question how to install this configuration…?
Thank you for your help.
