  • Welcome to Magento SE. Please share more information about your current setup. "save the day" sound like you managed to solve the problem. So what exactly is your configuration right now and how does the system misbehave? Jul 25, 2016 at 14:44

Why do you need to overcomplicate things so much? Get rid of pound. Use Nginx for SSL termination:

SSL request flow: Nginx -> Varnish -> Nginx (80) -> PHP-FPM

Normal request: Varnish -> Nginx (80) -> PHP-FPM
