SSL with a Reverse Proxy (NGINX) and Usenet Services

Really great guide. Appreciate all the effort! I was able to get through every step just fine (there was one thing i think you missed for the windows users — needed to change the path of openssl.cnf with an environment variable, but after that, everything was smooth sailing)… until literally the last step

“ Now we can must refresh NGINX. Simply stop and restart NGINX to reload the configuration file, and we should be good to go.”

For some reason at that point, i could no longer start up nginx. I’m trying everything i can, but i can’t seem to figure out why or what steps to take to troubleshoot. I’ve opened a reddit thread that has a lot more details on my issue here: https://www.reddit.com/r/homelab/comments/57ml8h/im_trying_to_get_ssl_on_an_nginx_reverse_proxy/

If you wouldn’t mind taking a look at it, i know you’re guide is more geared towards linux, but since its pretty much the only documentation i can find that even mentions windows, i thought maybe you might know whats up.
