Enabeling SSL causes Redirect Loop errors ???

I am new to Nginx but learning every day.  I have the server setup
nicely and the regular webpages serve up fine.  I have multiple IP's on
the server (less than 20) and I am trying to enable SSL for 3 different
sites (each on a different IP).  I have read for hours looking at
examples and trying many different things to see if I can get the SSL
pages to serve up and no luck.  I am hoping someone can help me. 
Running debian lenny, nginx 1.0.6, php 5.3.8, php-fpm,   I am only
wanting to run one domain SSL per IP,  (Bogus domain name has been
inserted below)

user www-user;
worker_processes 4;
pid /var/run/nginx.pid;

events {
        worker_connections 768;
        # multi_accept on;

http {

        # Basic Settings

        sendfile on;
        tcp_nopush on;
        tcp_nodelay on;
        keepalive_timeout 60 60;
        types_hash_max_size 2048;
        # server_tokens off;

        # server_names_hash_bucket_size 64;
        # server_name_in_redirect off;

        include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
        default_type application/octet-stream;

        # Logging Settings

        access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
        error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;

        # Gzip Settings

        gzip on;
        gzip_disable "msie6";

        gzip_vary on;
        # gzip_proxied any;
        gzip_comp_level 6;
        gzip_buffers 16 8k;
        gzip_http_version 1.1;
        gzip_types text/plain text/css application/json
application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss

        # Virtual Host Configs

        include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
        include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;

> include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;

There NO conf files located in the above folder.  I have not set up any
site specific conf files yet.

vhost entry (one try)

server {
        listen 80;
        listen ssl;
        server_name www.luvinlife.com luvinlife.com;

        ssl_certificate /usr/nginx/certs/luvinlife.pem;
        ssl_certificate_key /usr/nginx/certs/luvinlife.key;

        client_max_body_size 5m;

        root /var/www/luvinlife.com/public_html;
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
        index index.html index.php;

        location ~ \.php$ {
            #fastcgi_pass       unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
            fastcgi_index       index.php;
            include             fastcgi_params;
            fastcgi_param       SCRIPT_FILENAME
