Https Request / SSL Not Working


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 * and domains. I also have the “Always Use HTTPS” setting enabled.

Does anyone know why I continue to get 525 errors when I go to “”?

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: // ** 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

@erickalvarezwebdev, you do realise your site is still insecure?
