So I attempted to get Cloudflare to work in the past on my main website and both times I would get an error which results in my website going down out of panic I just switch back to Godaddy. The 2nd time my website went down again and I contacted Godaddy which told me that it’s not compatible. This I later found out was false, their customer support is clueless on a lot of stuff.
My second website however I tested and it does work with the same hosting plan going on a month now no issues. I believe this to be the SSL certificate being the issue since only one site is having the issue. I have managed WordPress hosting without a Cpanel. So the issue begins about 1-2 days after I set it up with Cloudflare and I’ll see the SSL certificate change to Cloudflare. It gives me an error but It’s been a few months and I forget exactly which one. It may have been error 525.
I’m using the free plan by Cloudflare until I get it up and running. All DNS records are correct, and also using Free SSL certificate. I’m wondering how to get a new SSL reissued to try that and see if it works? or if they may be another solution?
Update: I went ahead and installed it on my main site so far no issues in the past 3 days. I think the actual problem was having domain at Godaddy. Now that I’m with Namecheap it doesn’t seem to mess up knock on wood.
