How does an SSL-enabled Cloudflare proxy connect to a non-SSL endpoint?

Cloudflare does not connect to your server securely. That’s the weak link in Flexible SSL.

Cloudflare does offer origin certificates you can install on your web server:


Bad idea I am afraid. You should never do that. Just install a certificate and be done with it.

But yes, to answer your question, Cloudflare unfortunately does support such a setup. That is what @sdayman referred to. Still though, dont do it.
