They are. I get no errors from nginx whatsoever, just that no certificate after the first is never sent. If I change order I get error about key not matching, which is to be expected.

I have followed documentation at and, but no matter what I do it seems I can not get nginx to deliver more than one certificate. I have used both and to verify.

How can I troubleshoot what is going wrong with nginx?
