I suspect your server doesn’t have any type of SSL certificate for your site. Try changing your SSL to Flexible.

My SSL/TLS app settings details:

SSL: Flexible
Universal SSL Status: Active Certificate (green color)

Always use HTTPS

Automatic HTTPS Rewrites

Disable Universal SSL

These above are the settings currently. And I have done the SSL status as flexible as per your suggestion.
Anymore settings to do?

Clearly your server works with HTTP, which is what Flexible SSL uses to contact your server. I don’t know why using HTTPS all of a sudden makes your server unreachable.

Now is the time to contact Support: login to Cloudflare and then contact Cloudflare Support.

Thanks Sdayman. I have issued a ticket. I wish they sort it :frowning:

It’s working for me!? There’s a mixed content issue but:


Great! If @jinnia feel confident the “Always Use HTTPS” is stable, she can move on to enabling “Automatic HTTPS Rewrites” and tracking down anything left that’s still using HTTP.

As I usually suggest, if one has access to their .htaccess file, the add this line:
Header always set Content-Security-Policy "upgrade-insecure-requests;"

Yes Mark, It is working fine it seems.

Yes I have enabled the "Automatic HTTPS Rewrites”. So you r suggesting to add this code in the htaccess file as well? Then need to inform this to the developer for adding.

Yes, that line in htaccess will tell the visitor’s browser to use HTTPS for everything on your site. Cloudflare’s settings do a pretty good job, but sometimes Javascript sends an HTTP URL straight to the browser. “upgrade-insecure-requests” will catch anything Cloudflare doesn’t rewrite.

Thanks a lot Sdayman,

I have updated that to the htaaccess file.
