Infinite redirect to self

When I issue a get to I’m getting the following returned, which cause an infinite redirect (as it directs to the same URL in location). Any suggestions?

A 308 sound like it’s coming from your server and needs to be turned off.

What’s your SSL setting here? Probably Flexible, but let us know if it’s Full.

I’ve set my CNAME record to DNS only and the infinite loop went away. I’m still having issues, but at least it’s all on the server side now. But yes, my SSL was set to Flexible.



If you can install an SSL certificate and set your mode to Full or Full (Strict), that would be best. You can get a free origin certificate in the SSL/TLS app of your Cloudflare dashboard.
