Account active but ssl not working

I followed all the essential steps. I entered the DNS info on GoDaddy as fetched by Cloudflare. Installed Flexible SSL for Cloudflare Wordpress plugin and also entered all necessary setting. Like encryption mode is set to flexible, HTTPS is always turned on, automatic HTTPS rewrites is turned on.
Under page rule this is what i entered -
http://.itisatechblog.com/

but the SSL is still not working on my site. I am still seeing “Not Secure” message. Although my Cloudflare account is active and as I wrote everything seems fine.

Kindly help!

Hi @itisatechblog,

I see the redirection to HTTPS:

$ curl -I itisatechblog.com
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Date: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 12:08:45 GMT
Connection: keep-alive
Cache-Control: max-age=3600
Expires: Tue, 15 Sep 2020 13:08:45 GMT
Location: https://itisatechblog.com/
cf-request-id: 053343eb640000bc2469122200000001
Server: cloudflare
CF-RAY: 5d323c256edcbc24-LHR

However, your site can’t be secure if you are using Flexible and don’t have a certificate on your server.

Thanks for the reply.

I just saw it has started working. Probabaly SSL needed some time.
Re - Full
I just set it to ‘Full’. The message reads
Encrypts end-to-end, using a self signed certificate on the server

I am not generating any certificate. Just replaced the flexible mode with full mode.
Is it okay?

If generating a certificate is needed, can u guide the steps needed to do it using Cloudflare and uploading it on my host (GoDaddy)
