Install SSL certificate (easyengine)


I have a WordPress site running which was installed with easyengine a few months ago. It runs very well and was a piece of cake to build with easyengine. However, now I need to install an SSL certificate and I’m afraid to mess with the nginx settings. Don’t want to break anything.

Any warning or suggestions on how I should go about this?

Thank you,



Hi Adriano CorteReal,

You can configure ssl rules in following files vim /etc/nginx/sites-available/

listen 443 ssl;  
ssl_certificate /var/www/;  
ssl_certificate_key /var/www/;

Reload Nginx

nginx -t && service nginx reload
