The setup looks like this:

                  LOAD BALANCER                     WEBSERVERS

        443  | F5 Load Balancer     |  80   /---> NGINX(with Passenger)
USER <------>| with SSL certificate |------|
             | installed            |      |----> NGINX(with Passenger)
                                            \---> NGINX(with Passenger)

Communication between user and load balancer is going through
port 443 and between load balancer and webservers is going through
port 80.

What would be the correct nginx configuration for webservers, so they
don't redirect https://... connections to http://....
