Base url for gadgets check error


I installed Jira using Nginx as proxy with SSL following instructions from official site and community. But I still get "Base url for gadgets" healthcheck error.  Tell me please which way to look to resolve this issue. 

Jira version 7.5.2. Base url: https://jira.mydomain

Server.xml connector config, no other changes were made:

port="8080" acceptCount="100" connectionTimeout="20000" disableUploadTimeout="true" enableLookups="false" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" maxThreads="150"
minSpareThreads="25" protocol="HTTP/1.1"
redirectPort="8443" useBodyEncodingForURI="true"
scheme="https" proxyName="jira.mydomain"
proxyPort="443" secure="true"/>

Nginx 1.4.6 config:

server {
listen 80;
server_name jira.mydomain;
access_log off;
return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;

server {
listen 443 default ssl;
server_name jira.mydomain;
access_log off;
ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/ssl/jira.mydomain.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/ssl/jira.mydomain.key;

client_max_body_size 10M;

location / {
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

And this from catalina.out log is confusing me, since I'm not using Tomcat to proxy requests

HealthCheck:thread-4 ERROR ServiceRunner [] An error occurred when performing the Base URL healthcheck: PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

The error means Jira cannot talk to itself over its base url.

In this case, it is not presenting valid certificates to itself to connect over the https url you've got.
