Can you paste your ssl config ? – m0ntassar Oct 16 '12 at 11:31

It looks like your nginx haven't been built with ngx_http_ssl_module – B14D3 Oct 16 '12 at 12:14

It looks like your nginx haven't been built with ngx_http_ssl_module. See the output of nginx -V if there is no --with-http_ssl_module parameter then ssl will not work
