Not able to access admin panel of my website after installing cloudflare SSL edge certificate

Hi All ,

I’ve recently added a Cloudflare Edge Certificate to my GoDaddy-hosted WordPress website domain. However, I’m encountering difficulties accessing both the WordPress admin panel and the WordPress login page. Anyone face similar issue ? Your guidance and assistance in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

Your post is confusing. You cannot install a Cloudflare edge certificate on your origin host. The key cannot be removed from the Cloudflare proxy.

You can install a Cloudflare Origin CA certificate on your host, but that won’t prevent you from accessing your site as long as it is :orange: proxied.

What specifically do you encounter when you try to access your WP admin?

Thank you very much for quick response.

I am using SSL/TLS encryption mode Flexible and using edge certificates universal type.
I am not using any origin certificates.

At present, I am not able to open my wordpress website admin page (website/wp-admin). It’s showing blank page. Please help to advise on this.

Thank you

Your problem is

That mode should never be used. You need to use a publicly trusted certificate or a Cloudflare Origin CA certificate on your webserver and use Full (strict) mode.
