    My hunch is that because I decided to include the acme-companion image in this nginx setup, that maybe it has something to do with the SSL certs? The only other thing I could think of is that I had to combine the networks in order for nginx-proxy and Sonarr both to be able to see my transmission instance via:

    I'm experiencing a weird situation, and am not sure how to go about finding a solution. I am running the nginx-proxy container (https://github.com/nginx-proxy/nginx-proxy) together with the acme-companion container (https://github.com/nginx-proxy/acme-companion) to provide https connections to all my different applications under different subdomains on the same host (currently, for testing purposes: only two other nginx containers with a plain html page).

    We use the nginx-proxy docker image with its acme-companion to have an auto configuring SSL reverse proxy, so it's really easy to deploy images (we do it based on a merge PR into protected release branches).

    Use a reverse proxy to handle TLS/SSL encryption. I find nginx-proxy with companion easy to use, just follow steps 1, 2, 3.

    Where I'm running into issues is with the two stacks I have deployed - one is a wordpress stack which uses the wordpress image along with a db image (going by the docs here), and the other is the nginx-proxy and acme-companion (going by the docs here).

    Just use nginx-proxy and the LetsEncrypt companion as reverse proxy to handle TLS/SSL in front of your web server.

    You can simply use this proxy container which automatically generates nginx config based on envs set in your containers. There is also a companion container which takes care of your certs. https://github.com/nginx-proxy/nginx-proxy https://github.com/nginx-proxy/acme-companion
