Installed WordPress in sub folder, redirects to HTTPS

Hi, new here. I have a flexible SSL certificate from Cloudflare. I have tried to install WordPress in a separate folder to work on putting my current static website in WordPress format. For example I’m installing it in a folder example.com/cms/
When I try and go to the wp-admin, it redirects to https and says I do not have permission to view that page.
I’m not sure if this is WordPress related, my web host, or something I need to change at Cloudflare.
Would really appreciate some ideas on what to do,
Thanks!

It’s possible you have Wordpress set to force admin to use SSL. If so, then set it to false.

sdayman, thank you so much! I actually had to force it to use SSL…but that link you sent me to explained it. I had just about given up!
Thanks so much again
