    Using nginx with ssl after ignoring the auto-signed certificate error, alfresco does not open, says “404 Not Found” although it can open the index normally.

    Follows my configuration file: /etc/nginx/sites-availables/name-ip-ssl.conf

    ## File content ##
    server {
        listen 443 ssl;
           ssl_certificate     /etc/nginx/ssl/cert.crt;
           ssl_certificate_key  /etc/nginx/ssl/cert.key;
           ssl_session_cache    shared:SSL:1m;
           ssl_session_timeout  5m;
           ssl_ciphers  HIGH:!aNULL:!MD5;
           ssl_prefer_server_ciphers  on;
        access_log /var/log/nginx/;
        error_log /var/log/nginx/;
        root /srv/http;
        location / {
        index index.html index.htm index.php;
            autoindex on;
            autoindex_exact_size off;
            autoindex_localtime on;
        location /phpmyadmin {
            rewrite ^/* /phpMyAdmin last;
        location ~ \.php$ {
            #fastcgi_pass; (depending on your php-fpm socket configuration)
            fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
            fastcgi_index index.php;
            include fastcgi.conf;

    Congratulations on the article.

    I’m having trouble enabling services to start automatically.

    # systemctl enable nginx alfresco 

    Synchronizing state of nginx.service with SysV service script with /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install.
    Executing: /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable nginx
    alfresco.service is not a native service, redirecting to systemd-sysv-install.
    Executing: /lib/systemd/systemd-sysv-install enable alfresco
    update-rc.d: error: alfresco Default-Start contains no runlevels, aborting.

    Hello, Cesar,

    I followed all the setup steps listed and I’m having problems on the client side to access the alfresco page via nginx with ssl.

    I created a self signed certificate however the browsers continue to classify as “unsafe”

    On CentOS 7, you need to install cairo

    yum install cairo
