Loosing all of my (residual) hair on an access problem

Loosing all of my (residual) hair on an access problem

Dear friends,
I almost burned my eyes but have to call it quits. Hope you can help.
I have an nginx server setup on a raspberry box to power an rtorrent/rutorrent seedbox.

I get the /rutorrent page just fine from any local LAN client.

From my cellphone/iPad when NOT connected via WiFi but via cellular data (hence clients NOT on my local LAN) I cannot load the /rutorrent page nor the / page.

What is making me crazy is that ONCE I saw the damn page but now not anymore. Sometimes I see nothing at all, some other times despite using a http://xxx.yyy.www.zzz static IP public address the cellular browsers get a "secure connection failed" error.

FWIW sudo nginx -t succeeds while running nginx -t without root privileges quite understandably gives:
bob@rpi2b:/etc/nginx/sites-available $ nginx -t
nginx: [alert] could not open error log file: open() "/var/log/nginx/error.log" failed (13: Permission denied)
2018/08/11 18:06:47 [warn] 21893#21893: the "user" directive makes sense only if the master process runs with super-user privileges, ignored in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:1
2018/08/11 18:06:47 [emerg] 21893#21893: SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file("/etc/ssl/private/ruweb.key") failed (SSL: error:0200100D:system library:fopen:Permission denied:fopen('/etc/ssl/private/ruweb.key','r') error:20074002:BIO routines:file_ctrl:system lib error:140B0002:SSL routines:SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file:system lib)
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

Here follows the related data. Thank you for any help.
