I’m trying to set up my deployed site via Cloudflare; however, I can’t get https requests to work.
I’ve selected the “Full” SSL/TLS encryption mode. And under “Edge Certificates,” it looks like I have a Universal SSL certificate for the *.erickalvarez.info and erickalvarez.info domains. I also have the “Always Use HTTPS” setting enabled.
Does anyone know why I continue to get
525 errors when I go to “erickalvarez.info”?
Big thanks in advance for the help.
525 is referring to a bad certificate/HTTPS connection on your origin/host that Cloudflare is pointing to.
Does your site load over HTTPS with Cloudflare paused?
I just paused it and am now receiving the following error in my browser:
This site can’t be reached
The webpage at ** https: // www.erickalvarez.info/ ** might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
I’m not exactly sure what I’m doing wrong. The DNS settings look right so the domain should be pointing to the right files.
What did you do to configure the certificate on your origin site?
Aah I didn’t realize that “Full” encryption mode required configuration on my web host platform. I switched it back to “Flexible” and everything works now.
Thank you very much!
You shouldn’t be using Flexible
The connection between your visitor and Cloudflare is secured, but the connection between Cloudflare and your server is not. You will not need a certificate on your server for this mode. This option is NOT RECOMMENDED.
Flexible makes your site only partially secure - it encrypts the connection between the visitor and Cloudflare - this means they see the
in their browser and the site leaves the impression to be secure! However the connection between Cloudflare and your origin se…
@erickalvarezwebdev, you do realise your site is still insecure?
