The purpose is that i am not able to generate TLS certificates with lets encrypt. Can anyone please help me out with this issue.


Hi @dharma.vidyayug,

So are you wanting to bypass Cloudflare (switch the DNS record from :orange: to :grey:)? If not, can you use a DNS challenge rather than it trying to connect to your server?

Simply click the record you want to edit then click IP address and type in a new IP address (the one you want)

Another solution here would be using the certbot-dns-cloudflare package. From https://certbot-dns-cloudflare.readthedocs.io/en/stable/:

The dns_cloudflare plugin automates the process of completing a dns-01 challenge ( DNS01 ) by creating, and subsequently removing, TXT records using the Cloudflare API.
