My browser doesn’t like my Cloudflare SSL certificate.
I’ve already read all of the relevant community topics, and followed all of the disagnostic steps here:
Everything looks good in my Cloudflare dashboard:
- My account is up and running (status:Active - this website is active on Cloudflare)
- I have ‘orange cloud’ DNS records pointing at my host IP.
- My site works over HTTP: http://www.babyskills.ml
- My SSL certificate has been issued (status: Active Certificate).
- I am running the FULL SSL setting (my host has a self-signed certificate).
To diagnose any installation problems, I ran an SSL checker
- I can see that the Cloudflare certificate is being detected
- The certificate was issued by Comodo.
- The hostname (www.babyskills.ml) is correctly listed in the certificate.
So, everything looks great! Except…
When I try to access my page via HTTPS: https://www.babyskills.ml, I get en error ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID
I Chrome developer tools I see the following:
- Subject Alternative Name missing (The certificate for this site does not contain a Subject Alternative Name extension containing a domain name or IP address.)
- There are issues with the site’s certificate chain (net::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID).
When I look at the certificate, I don’t see any mention of Comodo, or my hostname, which makes me think that my browser is seeing the self-signed ORIGIN certificate of my hosting provider, NOT my cloudflare certificate.
What could be wrong?
- Browser issue? I’ve tried different browsers and different devices, but to no avail.
- Propagation issue? It has been 90 minutes since my certificate was issued.
- Caching issue? I’ve cleared my SSL state.
- Should I be using Flexible SSL? I tried this, too, but nothing changed.
