The plain HTTP request was sent to HTTPS port

I was receiving the error “The plain HTTP request was sent to HTTPS port” error”, Nginx error 400.  The problem was a an Nginx configuration error.  I found the solution in this StackOverflow question.  In the config file with your server info (mine was in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/default):

make these changes:

listen 80;
  listen 443 default ssl;

  # ssl on   - remember to comment this out
