Configuring Cloudflare HTTPS with Auto-SSL issued to domain by cPanel


I am able to get the secure padlock icon with https:// if I install the Really Simple SSL plugin with the AutoSSL certification generated in cPanel.

Somehow, I am just not able to get Cloudflare to work with this. I’ve tried all sorts of combinations with the Cloudflare SSL settings and also in WordPress settings but nothing seems to work. Every single time I enable Cloudflare, I get the 502 error.

I’ve referred the following resources and tried every step but nothing seems to work correctly.

I am now fedup and not sure what to do. I’ve already raised a support ticket but just got an automated response to it.

Why on earth is this SSL so hard to configure? I never imagined it would be so difficult.

Any further suggestions?
