I have a new customer and we want to move them to siteground using cloudflare. First they will NOT point their name servers to siteground. They will make the needed changes on their dns to point it to cloudflare/siteground.
We moved the site to the new server at siteground and can see it via the ip and changing my host record. We managed to point the site to siteground long enough to generate a cert on siteground and then change dns via this article: https://www.siteground.com/tutorials/cloudflare/external-domain/
In the wordpress options table we have both the site and url set to the url with the https:// in it.
After we make the change the site resolves correctly but we get the ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH error. We can’t wait 24 hours for a cert to be generated. This site can’t be down for 10 minutes and it can’t run without https because it has SO many links from other locations that point to https.
Can someone tell me how to switch this over using cloudflare and all the certs pre-generated? Siteground is struggling to figure this out for me. Thanks!
