Authorizing Certificate delay


Over 24 hours passed now and still CF shows Authorizing Certificate.
my domain:



Please see -> SSL Certificate Delays - What should I do? and reply here with answers to the questions it asks.

  • How long has it been “authorizing” for? about 25-28 hours
  • Have you contacted Cloudflare support? No
  • If you have, how long ago and what is the ticket number?
  • What is the plan level for the domain in question? Free
  • What error, if any, is displaying on your site at the moment? There is no errors
  • Are you signed up directly through Cloudflare or through a hosting provider/partner? Signed in both Cpanel and also directly on CF, but even on CF website it still shows that the certificate is not isssued yet.


My preferred approach is going to the Crypto settings tab and then scroll all the way down and Disable Universal SSL. Wait 10 minutes, then click it again to Enable Universal SSL.

And if all else fails, open a Support Ticket:
Login to Cloudflare and then contact Cloudflare Support


Thank you, it worked :slight_smile:
