I’m fresh new to HTTS and certificates / SSL issues, so maybe i’m acting dumb, but can’t manage to make it run.
Context : VPS in a hoster (LWS), Debian 8, Nginx Server, one domain (for starting), and a fresh from yesterday staging certificate from lets encrypt, generated via the GUI client of CERTBOT.
The certificate did generate, little issue on the screen size, but could manage it by myself.
Set up the nginx server to listen to port 443, via the following directives :
listen 443 ssl;
The web site on http port 80 is fine, but when i try to access it on https, no web repsonse. Through, i thnk port 443 is open, because when i try to Telnet www.mydomain.net 443, i have an empty answer, although when i try the same on, for example, 444, i have no answer at all.
On the DNS Side, didn’t make any modifications, but i don’t think i had to, right ?
Any help appreciated on what i can do to test in order to know what’s wrong with my configuration ?
