Nginx and Gandi SSL certificate

Getting SSL certificate from Gandi is quite straightforward task.

Just remember to combine two downloaded certificates into one domain.crt file.

Nginx configuration makes every web browser happy.

ssl on;
ssl_certificate     /etc/ssl/domain.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/domain.key;

ssl_protocols       SSLv3 TLSv1;
ssl_ciphers         HIGH:!ADH:!MD5;
ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

To check that certificate is installed correctly just go to Qualys SSL Labs site and perform their test. You will get visual interpretation and quite detailed results.
