Timeout after connect, at TLS handshake step

Only #2 will use the defaults.
#1 will use whatever is in the included file.


restart web service

Reloaded nginx configuration. Still timeout issue.

I do see what you see …

Please show their public cert files:

[although they are both from LE, there may be something different in there]

Wait a minute.
You made multiple changes.
The included file was remmed out but the three lines were also removed.

Now there is no CIPHER setting at all.
First there were too many now none.

If this is a TEST … we BOTH FAIL.

Because i commented that line, automatically content from /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-nginx.conf are not included in the full configuration.


Please include that line in both sections.

still https://abhaysrivastav.net is working without cypher setting.

I think you may NOT have correctly restarted NGINX.

This is once again NOT making any sense at all…

Can you just reboot the system?

Ok. Tell me why https://abhaysrivastav.net is working but https://youtubecut.com is not ? Why should i reboot the system ?


Even though you have TOLD the system to do the same for both - it is NOT doing what you asked it.

I do not know.
Lack of memory…
Lack of resources…
Driver issues…
Cache issues…
Again I don’t know.

Yes, nginx configuration changes are being reflected, if you are worried about that.

I am worried about it isn’t doing what you ask it to do.

Try stopping nginx and then starting it.

I have stopped the nginx and again restarted. But still same issue.

Try swap the certificates around, without doing anything else. (Swap ssl_certificate and ssl_certificate_key between the two virtual hosts).

Isolate whether it’s related to the the configuration of the virtualhost, or whether it’s actually a problem with the certificate.

This will cause SSL warnings in the browser, but at least it might help narrow the problem down.

Which file would be called the public key ? I want to send it so that you can check.

OK please show the output of nginx -T
But this time ensure you put a line above and below as follows:


I showed you the files (fullchain):
