Hey there folks,
I’m currently trying to set up a jekyll blog using github pages with a custom domain and cloudflare for SSL/HTTPS support.
I read a bunch of blogs and I feel like I did everything described in them.
Whether it is:
Nevertheless I’m having trouble making it work and I’m not sure why…
tl;dr of what I did:
- added a CNAME file to my git repo
- changed godaddys default dns nameservers to the cloudflare ones
- having 2 A records and one CNAME record present here in cloudflare (just like in the blogs)
- Under the Crypto tab I got: Status: Active Certificate
When trying to visit
mydomain.com I’m only getting this:
This site cannot be loaded due to a certificate error: https://mydomain.com net::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID Issued To Common Name (CN): *.github.com
As far as I understand it it still tries to use the valid cert for the
username.github.io pages or am I mistaken here?
I’m not sure where I did go wrong any.
Anyone having an idea?
