Can’t reach my server (or nginx properly)

This certificate looks good BUT it is not my origin’s certificate. Could it be this mismatch that is cause me trouble? Why isn’t it showing that certificate?

I just want to reach my server and services safely, securely, and quickly. Thanks for your help.

Your Origin has a self-signed certificate, but you have set the SSL Mode to Full (Strict).

% echo | openssl s_client -connect 188.x.y.z:443 -servername -tls1_2 2> /dev/null | sed -n '/Certificate chain/,/---/p'
Certificate chain
 0 s:/O=Nginx Proxy Manager/OU=Dummy Certificate/CN=localhost
   i:/O=Nginx Proxy Manager/OU=Dummy Certificate/CN=localhost

You have two options.

  1. Replace the certificate on your origin with a trusted certificate from a CA like Let’s Encrypt. This is the preferred option.
  2. Set your SSL Mode to Full

Will delet and replace the cert and let u know. Thanks

Result INTERNAL ERROR AT NGINX - internal error - are you sure u used cloudflare’ s api token or pasted the complete token.

I used the cloudflare global api, should I generate a token instead? I created one. Not sure of all the options, but new error - can’t confirm zone-I’d for Is it associated with this cloudflare account?

Which of course it is.

UPDATE - stated from scratch. Delete and re installed the certificates , double checked ports, etc. and now seems to be working. Still need to add Wordpress or something as a front end to test that though. Thanks
