SSL noob here with some questions. I run a NGINX webserver with http://example.com/, http://pma.example.com/, ect a few subdomains. From my understanding cloudflare free supports SSL over just the http://example.com/ part without the subdomain, and to have a subdomain protected I need to either upgrade, or use my own certificate then disable cloudflare for that subdomain. Sounds OK to me.
Now, I read somewhere that Ryan posted about having SSL between the origin server and the cloudflare server. It would be great if someone could explain this, but the first question is.
Do I need to enable https support in nginx with cloudflare ssl enabled on http://example.com/?
Is NGINX with SSL enabled the part that takes care of the SSL connection between the origin server and the cloudflare server?
Hoping my question makes sense. Thanks
