We are using Bluehost for our Wordpress blogs and Shopify for our stores. Domain is through GoDaddy, and directed to Cloudflare (CDN), which in turn points to Bluehost and Shopify.
2 Weeks ago, everything was working. Sites were secure, had no errors, etc. We had it set up so that the blog was the sub-domain (blog.domain.com) and the store was the main domain (domain.com). We changed this so that the blog now went to the main domain (domain.com) and the store went to a sub-domain (shop.domain.com).
Since making this change, nothing has worked right. The blog would not load, kept giving a misconfiguration warnings.
- The IP address has changed.
- There has been a server misconfiguration.
- The site may have moved to a different server.
I should note that we have another site set up under the same Bluehost account on a sub-domain and it is working as expected with a FULL SSL certificate.
We finally troubleshooted down to that if I changed the SSL to “flexible”, it would load the blog with the SSL securing the pages, but it would cause a too many redirect message for the store.
I’m reaching out to see if anyone has seen this issue or knows how to resolve it using the existing host & Shopify. I’ve reached out to Shopify, but they are not confident that they can fix it, as the “fix” deals may be outside of what can be done (fix is here:https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000219871-Why-does-Flexible-SSL-cause-a-redirect-loop-).
Any and all insight would be very much appreciated. This is beyond the scope of my knowledge and not sure who to ask specifically.
