Two things.

1. you probably don't need to pass

>> upstream gcn-ssl { server ; server  
>> backup ; }

if nginx is handling the ssl negotation. Backending to the http port  
is a more accepted pattern.


>> server_name ; ssl on ;
Is probably not sufficient, you'll need to configure your private key  
and signed cert as well.
