I don’t mind proxing with nginx port 443 to apache port 80, as long as
the connection between nginx and the client is using https.

I want this because I got only one IPv4 address and multiple local
servers with services running on port 80 or 443. Proxing for nginx port
80 to apache port 80 works perfectly. I now want to have an https
connection also.

Thanks in advance,

Kind regards,
