I know there have been several topics about this, but I just can’t make it work:
- “A” record example.com to IP
- “A” record nohttps.example.com to same IP
- Encryption full (strict)
- Page rule “nohttps.example.com/DirectDownload/*” --> SSL OFF
This works fine after clearing the browser & HSTS cache. When I visit e.g. https://nohttps.example.com/DirectDownload/helloworld I get redirected to http. But after visiting my main site, I get a redirect loop on this same url from HSTS trying to bring me onto https.
So what I’m probably looking for is a way to tell cloudflare to exclude “nohttps.example.com/DirectDownload/*” (or the subdomain alone, I don’t care) from its hosts. How can I do that?
Thanks for your help!
