NGINX + Reverse Proxy + SSL

Hello :wink:

As part of a project, I need to perform a reverse proxy to a server that
runs apache https.

I do not have the certificates on the destination server and I can not
add them to nginx.

I tried the following configuration but the site is unavailable:

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


   access_log  /var/log/nginx/;

   error_page 404 = /404.htm;

   location /404.htm {
     root /var/www;

   location / {
            proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;



Thanks for your help if you have any idea :wink:
