Set up SSL certificates so that upgrades won't override them

Local patches to the code on your instance are almost always overwritten when you upgrade your instance. For most local patches, you'll need to reapply them after every upgrade.

  1. Place your your certificate and key files here (or create symlinks):

  2. Restart nginx to start using SSL by running the following in the console as dradispro:
    $ sudo service nginx restart
