I have setup AtoM with Nginx unde Linux - Ubuntu 18.04 

1. What are the setup required under Nginx Webserver? 

2. The installation is under AWS, can I use the cert issue by AWS or need to buy one?

Hi Maximilian,

You very well might be able to use the certificate issued by AWS if it is configured for your site name.

A variation that should work - similar to as described at https://www.accesstomemory.org/en/docs/2.5/admin-manual/installation/linux/ubuntu-bionic/#web-server but like this

server {

  listen 80;
server_name archives.foobar.com;
return 301 https://archives.foobar.com$request_uri;
}

server {
listen 443 ssl;
 root /usr/share/nginx/atom; server_name archives.foobar.com;
ssl on;
ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/private/foobar/aws-foobar.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/private/foobar/aws-foobar.key;
ssl_session_timeout 5m;
ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:50m;
ssl_ciphers 'ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-DSS-AES128-GCM-SHA256:kEDH+AESGCM:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-SHA:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA384:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES128-SHA:DHE-DSS-AES128-SHA256:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA256:DHE-DSS-AES256-SHA:DHE-RSA-AES256-SHA:AES128-GCM-SHA256:AES256-GCM-SHA384:AES128-SHA256:AES256-SHA256:AES128-SHA:AES256-SHA:AES:CAMELLIA:DES-CBC3-SHA:!aNULL:!eNULL:!EXPORT:!DES:!RC4:!MD5:!PSK:!aECDH:!EDH-DSS-DES-CBC3-SHA:!EDH-RSA-DES-CBC3-SHA:!KRB5-DES-CBC3-SHA';
ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;

 client_max_body_size 72M;

(( rest the same as outlined in the documentation ))


If the AWS certificate doesn't work out, you could buy one or set up a free one like Let's Encrypt (https://letsencrypt.org/)

Please let us all know here how it goes or if you have any more questions.
