I have 6 domains on CloudFlare and I just noticed that two of them are set to SSL/TLS > OVERVIEW > FLEXIBLE and not FULL.
When I change them they return:
Error 525 Ray ID: 56336f114e8671e3 • 2020-02-11 04:03:35 UTC
SSL handshake failed
All of my other sites (www.ElectricCadi.com, www.MyCeliacWorld.com and others) are fine with FULL. All are the same WordPress build and none have their own cert (which I thought was a requirement for FULL, but apparently it not).
I read a few other posts on the subject but did not find an answer beyond, this is a problem with your host which does not help me very much
Just the one: All websites should have TLS/SSL enabled at the origin for secure communication. The 525 indicates that this is not the case. Some hosts have some sort of certificate on the server, but a generic one that doesn’t match your domain. Plain “Full” will accept this, but Strict will not.
If you set that hostname to and wait 5 minutes for DNS to propagate, you can experiment with SSL on the host.
I am seeing HTTPS and happy SSL on all sites. My issue is that sites like www.URTech.ca and www.ElectricCadi.com are functional with FULL but two other sites www.PartisanIssues.com and www.Commodore.ca will only function with FLEXIBLE.
This is clearly not a crisis but if could get all my sites to the same level, I would be happier.
This is NOT a big deal but I hate mysteries. Often they are hiding something more serious.
If you have any ideas, let me know otherwise I will just wrap this one up.
Great work @cloonan . It would appear that I transposed two numbers in the IP of www.Commodore.ca and www.PartisanIssues.com . I have no idea how the sites are working because they are all hosted by GoDaddy on the IP that www.URTech.ca is on, but I will correct this and see what happens.
