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 SSL/TLS app, 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.

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.
