Error connecting to certificate service (Code: 1403) received while SSL Edge Certificate pending verification

I tried to search for other posts who were receiving this error but there was not much information. I’m waiting for my SSL Edge Certificate to validate and it has been about 3+ hours at this point. I saw a red banner pop up at the bottom of the page that says “Error connecting to certificate service (Code: 1403)”. I’ve set up CloudFlare successfully on another site before and the validation only took about 15 minutes and I never received any error. Is there something I’m missing? Please advise.

Hi @frannet,

It can take up to 24hrs for the Universal certificate to issue. If it has been that long, please try disabling Universal SSL, waiting a few minutes and re-enabling it, to restart the process.
