NGINX is installed by default in Linux. NGINX should not be configured on the server after installation, as upgrading the 

 version will overwrite any customizations. Instead, any custom domains or certificates for NGINX must always be done in the Setup Assistant. In the Web Server section of the Setup Assistant, you can add the SSL certificates for NGINX, which are required for an HTTPS installation. The steps to create the "crt" and "key" files are described here.

The files may be placed anywhere on the server. For example:



Starting from release version 2017_02,
