Cloudflare + LetsEncrypt + Wordpress = ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH
I’m unable to find the solution to my problem. Searched the whole community but couldn’t find the proper answer.
I setup Cloudflare FREE for my website and kept the following settings:
Always Use HTTPS: ON
HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS)
– Status: On
– Max-Age: 3 months
– Include subdomains: On
– Preload: On
Authenticated Origin Pulls: ON
Minimum TLS Version: TLS 1.0
Opportunistic Encryption: OFF
Onion Routing: ON
TLS 1.3: Enabled
Automatic HTTPS Rewrites: ON
Disable Universal SSL: Enable Universal SSL
// Yea I’m confused about this option ‘disable universal SSL’ and the button says ‘enable’. Its so confusing.
I saw a lot of posts in the community and youtube tutorials. Everyone shows that there’s a field saying “SSL Status” under the SSL box on the top (as in the screenshot above) but on my side, there’s nothing like that.
Ok on my wordpress side.
I installed wordpress using cPanel softaculous on http://www.
(before activating SSL in Cloudflare)
After installing I logged into the wp-admin and installed Cloudflare plugin.
(now I activated SSL to FULL in Cloudflare)
And Now i’m getting ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH
What I need?
My wordpress install is on cPanel with LetsEncrypt. I want to enable Cloudflare (free) now.
