Recently, I bought an Aliyun server in the Double 11, I want to bind my web domain, but as you know, under the Chinese policy, we have to fill a complicated application. but I found that I can use https to breaking the block. so how to config the free https on Nginx?
At first, we should have a domain. then click this link
we choose the Manual Verification because it is the easiest way. we only have to fill some information on the dashboard and add a txt record for it, following the step.
the purpose is to verify you are the owner of the domain.
then click next. Download SSL Certificate.
we got 3 encoded text.
ssh to your Nginx config.
mkdir /etc/nginx/ssl cd /etc/nginx/ssl vi certificate.crt
copy the Certificate content, pasted the content into the file and save it
copy the Private Key content, pasted the content into the file and save it
copy the CA Bundle content, pasted the content into the file and save it
combine the certificate.crt and the ca_bundle
cat certificate.crt ca_bundle.crt >> ca_chain.crt
the next, edit the Nginx config.
add a server node like this
run: nginx -t , if it is ok, then run: server nginx restart,
Finally you can use https to visit your website.
