hey guys im getting an nginx error message when trying to use ssl on my server:

[emerg] 3108#6408: SSL_CTX_use_PrivateKey_file("C:\Users\Server\Desktop\host\myterms.co.uk\nginx/conf/ssl/myterms_co_uk.key") failed (SSL: error:0B080074:x509 certificate routines:X509_check_private_key:key values mismatch)

i've added the following to my nginx config:

ssl_certificate ssl/domain.ca-bundle;
ssl_certificate_key ssl/domain.key;

domain.ca-bundle  - my certificate bundle sent to me from comodo
domain.key            -  my private key generated with my RSA key


i've search the net, and i read that the i need to remove passphrase from key

openssl rsa -in domain.key -out newkey.pem

but that didnt work either



any help would be appreciated as i'm truly stuck now.

thank you

Make sure the bundle has the certificates in the right order: nginx expects yours at the top and the rest of the chain after.


it appears the bundle sent from comodo was put together wrong.


i had to put my domain cert with my intermediate certificates in order and finally convert to .pem


not going to lie, it was tough :sweat:


but it worked thanks for the good advise requinix :happy-04:
