Enabled Always Use HTTPS from quickstart guide, site down


I had my site up and all was fine yesterday evening. On logging in to Cloudflare to check traffic, i decided to go through the quickstart guide as it was bugging me having it constantly asking to complete it.

I activated Always Use HTTPS and suddenly no one could log in to my site using 3rd party sign in, just getting too many redirects and failure.

I have disabled this setting again but the problem has not gone away and login is still broken.

I am wondering if there is something else that I need to do to ensure its not interfering?

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Make sure your encryption mode is Full Strict.

Hi Sandro,

Sorry, I am not sure where you mean? Is that a Cloudflare option?

Yes, it is → https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/ssl-tls

false alarm, it seems its a coincidence that i changed this setting at same time.

API provider decided to make a breaking change at midnight and tell no one, just found the real culprit.

thanks anyway!

That’s all right. As long as you are on Full Strict, your settings should be okay.
