If I specify listen 80 ssl; , then whenever I try to access a hosted site using http, the only error that I see is:

no "ssl_certificate" is defined in server listening on SSL port while SSL handshaking, client: x.x.x.x, server:

The fix was removing ssl from the listen directive, however it was difficult to track down the mistake.
The desired outcome would be to flag this at configtest.


server {
   listen 80 ssl;
   listen 443 ssl;
   listen [::]:443 ssl;


   root /var/www/html;

   access_log /var/log/nginx/....access.log;
   error_log  /var/log/nginx/....error.log error;

   index index.php;

   ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/...;
   ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/...;

If we use the AWS certificate manager and which is configured as part of the ELB, we are getting the same issue.

How to listen to the 443 with out configuring any certificate on the nginx?
