Here are a few things you can check (all of these need to be run as root or
using `sudo`):

Is nginx actually listening on port 443? There are lots of different
commands you can use to check this, but I like to use `netstat -lptn | grep
nginx`.

Is there an error in your config? Check this with `nginx -t`.

Have you allowed port 443 through your firewall? Check `/var/log/syslog`
for firewall messages.
