Getting following error since adding site to Cloudflare: ERR_SSL_VERSION_ OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

Hi all,

I have just set up my website with Cloudflare. My website is hosted on DreamHost and has a free Let’sEncrypt SSL certificate. I have added it to Cloudflare and changes the DNS settings to point to Cloudflare. I have since been having this error on the website: ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH

My settings on Cloudflare:

  • SSL/TLS encryption mode: Full (strict)
  • Edge certificate: Universal (active)
  • Always use HTTPS: Off
    All other settings are set to the default, standard settings.

Please help!

Hi @cleardesign,

Did you manage to get this resolved?

If not, here’s some info:
The error “ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH" in Google Chrome prevents access to the site because it detects an issue with creating a valid connection to your site. This may be a temporary issue, and should resolve itself within 24 hours. If not, grey-cloud/deactivate Cloudflare so that the website uses the origin’s SSL certificate, see How do I temporarily deactivate Cloudflare? Activate Cloudflare again in 24 hours and try to access your website to see if the SSL certificate has been successfully deployed.
