HI, i found several pages online, which give step by step setup for
Disabled Universal SSL and SSL from origin server
The latest one is from May 2021. I cannot add the link, but here is brief description of the setup they and many others promote:
SSL Mode in Cloudflare Account
SSL mode: Full SSL
Always use HTTPS. Set it ON.
SSL Settings in Cloudflare
- Max-age: 3 months*
- Apply HSTS policy to subdomains: Off*
- Preload: Off*
*other settings *
Set Minimum TLS Version to TLS 1.2*
Set Opportunistic Encryption to ON*
Set TLS 1.3 to Enabled*
Set Automatic HTTPS Rewrites to ON*
Disable Universal SSL. Since you’re not using the Cloudflare Universal SSL anymore and instead utilizing the SSLs stored on your server, click on “I Understand” and then confirm.*
That’s the right way to use Let’s Encrypt with Cloudflare. The setting changes will prevent any downtime as much as possible. After implementation, the data will be transferred using HTTPS via Let’s Encrypt.
Based on the steps it seems that some of the cloudflare menus are now changed.
Is that setup applicable in June 2023 and is it supposed to work with Proxy Status enabled?
