What’s SSL level in your Cloudflare dashboard


Try changing it strict and tell me how it goes?

Error 526

Invalid SSL certificate

Pause the Cloudflare on the site and see if SSL is working at your hosting

Now I can see the GoDaddy default page i think.

Future home of something quite cool.

If you’re the site owner, [log in] to launch this site

If you are a visitor, check back soon.

demo (dot) learncodeweb (dot) com
The subdomain is working but not the main domain

I suggest you use the “Pause Cloudflare on Site” option from the Overview tab for your domain at dash.cloudflare.com. The link is in the lower right corner of that page. Give it five minutes to take effect, then make sure site is working as expected with HTTPS. Only then should you un-pause Cloudflare and double-check your SSL/TLS setting to make sure it’s Full (Strict).


I tried all but unfortunately not working.

If you have paused Cloudflare and it is still not working then this is something you need to address with your hosting provider or administrator.


What domain provider said this is from Cloudflare side :slight_smile: actually I am stuck my domain is down and i have no idea who can i connect it with Cloudflare.

Solution Only for WP:
I fix the issue by changing few things in code and in database.
I think it is working now learncodeweb(dot)com with http and without https protocol.

  1. Comment all code of .htaccess
  2. Open DB table wp_options and change URLS siteurl & home without https.
  3. Disabled all plugins just rename the plugins dir name directly.
  4. Add rules for https in Cloudflare.

I hope this will help others.
Thank you
