I have a problem concerning the SSL for my Cloudflare account, when I put cloudflare live the website gives this error: err_ssl_version_or_cipher_mismatch, I understand it’s because the SSL certificate is not validated yet. After 24 hours it still says Pending validation as status, I followed instructions by disabling the universal SSL, wait 5 minutes and enable it again but after a couple of days now it still is pending validation. Can anyone help with this?
As I need my website live I paused my Cloudflare account during this process.
I created a ticket as well, ticket id is #2155153.
Thanks for your reply.
Yes I already had a SSL certificate through the partner of Cloudflare Siteground, sorry should have mentioned this before. I also got to Cloudflare via Siteground where the website is hosted.
On advice of Siteground I selected Full as encryption mode. The SSL/TLS recommender is also on.
I also already tried clearing the web browser cache but that didn’t work as well.
Under the Edge Certificates tab I selected the following options:
Always use HTTPS: ON
HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS): Not enabled (button says enable)
Minimum TLS Version: TLS 1.0 (default)
Opportunistic Encryption: OFF
TLS 1.3: ON
Automatic HTTPS Rewrites: ON
Certificate Transparency Monitoring: OFF
Disable Universal SSL: button says disable universal SSL
