Is this on a VPS? They might have and additional firewall on the hosting side you need to adjust.

If this is behind a routwer and you are outside the network make sure to port-forward port 443.

Thanks so much for your reply. See answers below.

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`.

root@biscotty-lt:/etc/nginx/conf.d#<mailto:root@biscotty-lt:/etc/nginx/conf..d#> netstat -lptn | grep nginx
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:443 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 58325/nginx: master
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:80 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 58325/nginx: master
Is there an error in your config? Check this with `nginx -t`.

root@biscotty-lt:/etc/nginx/conf.d#<mailto:root@biscotty-lt:/etc/nginx/conf..d#> nginx -t
nginx: the configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf syntax is ok
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test is successful


Have you allowed port 443 through your firewall? Check `/var/log/syslog` for firewall messages.
I've disabled the firewall until I get this resolved.

Hi,

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. I hope someone here has some ideas because I don't
know where else to turn.

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 indefinitely. 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.devhttp://www.biscotty.dev;
return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;
}

listen 443 ssl;
