Owncloud setup issues


hi there,
I'm trying to setup owncloud on a virtualbox. I am using the tutorial on http://www.howtoforge.com/your-cloud...-on-centos-6.2

i have gotten to the end of the tutorial and when i try to get to the webpage using elinks the error i get says "Unable to retrieve https://owncloud.example.com/: SSL error

i would appreciate any help at all if you need any more information or any have questions let me know.

The tutorial explicitly configures the Nginx web server for HTTPS, has you create a server certificate and only allow TCP/443 through the firewall.

I'm not familiar with elinks' error messages so to diagnose this from the CLI you could have openssl return info with 'openssl s_client -connect owncloud.example.com:443 -showcerts' and add the certificate in say Firefox (Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Encryption > View Certificates > Add Exception) and the browse the site. If the latter works it's because the server cert is self-signed and not by one of the commercial Certificate Authorities.
