Basic SSL Setup Error Question (Hooking weebly and Cloudflare together)?

ssl
godaddy
weebly

#1

I want to add CloudFlare SSL security to my Weebly site for https. Weebly is the hoster and GoDaddy the registrar. I got https to work just fine with my site, but now when I try to publish updates to my site, Weebly says “It appears that your domain is not properly setup to display your website. Please follow the domain setup instructions, or if you already have, allow up to 48 hours for the DNS changes to propagate.”

What do I need to do to keep https working through CloudFlare and still be able to publish updates to my Weebly site?

Or is it not possible to accomplish this?

Thanks for any help!

I’m guessing that Weebly insists on being your DNS provider so they can update your IP address as needed and serve your site in the most optimal (for them) way possible.

Thanks for the insight. I found out that even though Weebly says it can’t publish the site, it actually does still publish the site. Glad to have this working.

im no expert but this is what i did to resolve my https error.
i first added my site to cloudflare
then pointed my nameservers to cloudflare in godaddy
the used https://www.whynopadlock.com/
to determine any errors because the https was not working.
then saw errors being generated from the above website
went to cloudflare under crypto changed
ssl = FLEXIBLE
always use https = ON

clear my cookies and history on browser
and now i have the the https working… :slight_smile:

good luck to all of you…
and thank you community for posting.
this was my solution may work for you or may not… hopefully this resolves many issues in the future.

after doing the above i had a
Mixed Content - Errors
when i rechecked the website with https://www.whynopadlock.com/
the solution i found was to go back to cloudflare under crypto scroll down to
Automatic HTTPS Rewrites = ON
turning it on and reran the check with
https://www.whynopadlock.com/
no more error for mixed content.
good luck

plz be aware everytime you update your site with weebly via publish there will be an error referring to updating the site

here is the example —>

It appears that your domain is not properly setup to display your website. Please follow the domain setup instructions, or if you already have, allow up to 48 hours for the DNS changes to propagate

disregard this the site will still publish correctly. its picking up the cloudflare.
