YouTrack and nginx as reverse proxy




I'm using the YouTrack ZIP which is installed and running fine behind nginx as reverse proxy.

Setup SSL which also works as expected with a browser.


However, trying to use the JetBrains plugin within PHPStorm for YouTrack, using SSL, connection is always timed out or failed.

The certificate is not self signed and is a chain certificate, issued by let's encrypt.

I tried adding the certificate as trusted certificate to PHPStorm as well, but still connection time out.


If I disable SSL on nginx, it works like a charm and connects within 1 second though I would prefer to use SSL.
