Well now I'm getting somewhere, its working :) I switched it all over to
https since everything I read tells me I should. 

However if I'm understanding it correctly I'm not doing yhos the best
way, here is my working config, what should I do differently?

Oh and thanks for all your help, the list archives realy helped me.

server {
    listen       443;

    ssl                  on;
    ssl_certificate      cert.pem;
    ssl_certificate_key  cert.key;
    ssl_session_timeout  5m;

    location / {
    proxy_set_header        Host $host;
    proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_pass    ;

Could you make debug log:

./configure --with-debug ...


error_log  /path/to/log debug;


Be careful, your username/password encoded in base64 may be in debug log
if server uses Basic Authorization. Use some temporary password.
