My site's https url is not working after activating cloudflare. How to troubleshoot?

My site’s https, origin hosted at bluehost, is not working after activating bluehost.
Under the crypto tab, it says that issuing a certificate may take up to 24 hours. However, I had my own lets encrypt certificate on bluehost.
I tried setting the mode to full (strict) but it didn’t seem to change much. For now, I have put cloudflare on pause.
Do I need to check any settings in particular to make it work?

Keep the LE Cert on Bluehost so that end is secured. Give the Cloudflare one a bit of time to set up.

Thanks @sdayman, I just wanted to know if this is expected behaviour or have I fucked things up.

How accurate is this tool:

I don’t think it’s entirely accurate, as it says my sites are not enabled in Spain and Netherlands.

I prefer:


Thanks mate. Really helpful.
