Good Day, does anyone have some simple instructions for configuring/setting up https support in NGINX for Windows? Thanks

Here are the instructions;

Download Nginx
http://nginx-win.ecsds.eu/

Download win-acme pluggable
https://github.com/PKISharp/win-acme/releases

Run wacs.exe in Command Prompt then use selections below;

M (Create Full), 2 (Manual), 6 (dns-01 Create Manually), 2 (RSA), 2 (PEM Nginx), 5 (No more stores), 4 (No additional)
Create the TXT Record at your Domain hosting portal with the content string displayed on the screen then continue and it will create the Certs.

Add to your nginx.conf config file; (Edit the location of the files and your domain name of course)

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server_name localhost;
ssl_certificate C:/Temp/domain.com-chain.pem;
ssl_certificate_key C:/Temp/domain.com-key.pem;
ssl_session_timeout 5m;
charset utf-8;

location / {
root C:/www/;
index index.html;
}
}
}


Check if SSL is working - https://www.ssl2buy.com/wiki/ssl-installation-checker or just https your site.

I posted the instructions but it doesn't seem to be showing, unless it's waiting for moderator approval as it errors when I try to post them again;
"The message could not be posted. The exact same message has already been posted before and posting duplicate messages is not allowed in this forum."
