I'm pretty new to nginx but do have a server up and running. I've been pulling my hair out over ssl setup though. I have read the docs on your server and some others like the alpine site. The most recent attempt I followed the video tutorial on your website. Whenever I try to connect via ssl it hangs. No errors show in the nginx logs.

I'm running Ubuntu 20.04. Nginx was installed following the instructions on your website.

When I try to access http://www.biscotty.dev with curl I get a response. If I explicitly request https it hangs indeifinitely. The commands/responses are posted below.

Not sure if this matters but I have learned that dev domains try to enforce https, so explicitly using http in a browser gui craps out no matter what, but curl ignores this and serves you via http anyway. I don't know if this matters but I thought I would mention it.

Here is my .conf file. I have not modified anything else from the initial install.
server {
listen 80 default_server;
server_name www.biscotty.dev;
return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

server {
listen 443 ssl;
server_name www.biscotty.dev;

ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/ssl/biscotty.dev.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/biscotty.dev.key;

location / {
root /usr/share/nginx/html;
index index.html index.htm;
root@biscotty-lt:/etc/nginx/conf.d# curl -I http://biscotty.dev
