Deafult Plesk Page does not work via https if Nginx is enabled as proxy server. shows domain content instead of Plesk default page.


This issue has been considered as software issue #PPPM-854 and was fixed in Plesk 12.0.18.

Temporary workaround

  1. Create a config backup

    cp /etc/nginx/plesk.conf.d/server.conf /etc/nginx/plesk.conf.d/server.conf.orig
  2. Add the following directives at the end of /etc/nginx/plesk.conf.d/server.conf nginx configuration file:

    server {
        listen ssl;
        ssl on;
        ssl_certificate             /usr/local/psa/var/certificates/cert-wkhbkb;
        ssl_certificate_key         /usr/local/psa/var/certificates/cert-wkhbkb;
        ssl_session_timeout         5m;
     ssl_protocols               SSLv2 SSLv3 TLSv1;
        ssl_ciphers                 HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;
        ssl_prefer_server_ciphers   on;
     location / {
            proxy_set_header Host $host;
            proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

Where "" is IP address of your server.

  1. Apply nginx configuration:

    [root@]# /etc/init.d/nginx reload
    Reloading nginx:                                           [  OK  ]

Note: /etc/nginx/plesk.conf.d/server.conf can be overwritten.
