I have setup HA with NGNIX Proxy manager and Duck DNS and everything was working fine until a couple of days ago I could not access HA via the duckDNS url. I was still able to access HA via the local URL.
My router setup also has portforwarded port 433 to 433 and this is the only port which was forwarded.
After a lot of trouble, was able to figure out that the SSL certificate in NGIX had expired which was causing this issue. Tried to renew the certificate maually in NGNIX (via the UI renew option) but it kept giving me “internal error” and “time out” messages on the NGNIX UI. I then enabled the portforwarding from 8123 to 8123 on the router and did the same action and the certificate got renewed.
My questions are;
- Has anyone had thier SSL cert not renew and have you had to manually renew on NGNIX Prox manager?
- If you manulaly renewed do you have port forwarding for port 8123 to 8123
- Does NGNIX auto renew the SSL Cert? Do I need to do anything special to make this happen?
- Do I have to have other ports forwaded (other than 443) for this to work?
