Disable universal SSL causes error


My title should be Disable universal SSL causes “ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH” error. But the system insists that it isn’t a complete sentence. -.-"
I just want to try the DNS service provided by Cloudflare. But I have difficulties on the security setting “universal SSL”. I noted that they try to “encapsulate” all http traffic with their own certificate. I am happy with Let’s encrypt certificate and don’t need such encapsulation feature. After I try to turn it off I recevie ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH. Here is my site


Any hints for that?


Cloudflare is a Proxy server. You have Let’s Encrypt that connects Cloudflare to your web server, and then there is Universal SSL that connects your visitors to Cloudflare.

You can’t use your Let’s Encrypt certificate on Cloudflare unless you are on a Business or Enterprise plan.


If you only want to use Cloudflare’s DNS services, change the records it eh DNS control panel which are currently :orange:to :grey: and that will return the origin and not utilize Cloudflare’s proxy service.
