The reverse Proxy is quite Tricky if you have no idea what nginx does.
ive searched the web and merged some configs, this one works for me,
cut and paste replace SERVERNAME.NET for your domain name. and ofcourse the PATH for PUBLIC and Certifactes
Problem here is not really NGinX but centos AUDIT, it took me a LONG while to figure out
that the AUDIT system was blocking requests
Basically this fixed it (+ disabling all hidden firewalls and just enabling iptables)
cat /var/log/audit/audit.log | grep nginx | grep denied | audit2allow -M mydiaspora
cat nginx.conf

Reverse proxy

You most likely have already a webserver running on port 80 (http) and 443 (https). It also should serve Diasporas static content and forward all other requests to Diaspora. Here are some example configurations to achieve that:
