nginx and Intermediate SSL Certificates

Unlike Apache which takes intermediate SSL certificates using a specific config file directive:

SSLCertificateChainFile /sites/

nginx vends out intermediate certificates by concatenating them together between the server certificate and the root certificate in a single file. You can very simply do this with cat:

cat site.crt intermediate.crt root.crt > chain.pem

Don't forget, order matters here!
