"Cloudflare Origin SSL Certificate Authority certificate is not trusted"

CONTEXT : A subdomain with proxy off api.mydomain.com… some times cloudflare don’t pass some headers…

I HAVE : alma linux with CPANEL.

I INSTALLED : “Origin Certificates” from the section /ssl-tls/origin

WHEN I TRY : curl -I "https://api.mydomain.com/"

I GET : curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate in certificate chain More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

IN A BROWSER I GET : “Cloudflare Origin SSL Certificate Authority certificate is not trusted”

Why and how to fix this ??

As the Origin certificate generator page says, these certs are only to be used between your server and Cloudflare. Not between the server and visitors directly connecting to it. It has to be a :orange: Proxied hostname.

My issue is around a webhook…

the webhook “tries” to communicate with my api.mydomain.com

I tried with AND without the cloud orange “proxied” logo…

both same 403 (from the webhook side)

is there any other way ?

I don’t think anything would send a 403 for a certificate issue. Have you checked your logs?
