Origin CA certificate Renew?


#1

Does the origin CA cert from cloudflare require any maintenance e.g. renew?

Or, is it simple download, implement, and forget?


#2

Assuming you issue the cert for 15 years, you shouldn’t have to touch the certificate after implementing it on your server.


#3

Best not “forget” it’s there if you stop using Cloudflare. That certificate won’t work in the wild…it’s only recognized by Cloudflare’s proxy servers.

Ohh, work it will. Also scare it will you :smile:

@TheNameIsHidden, it still requires maintenance and needs to be renewed. How often simply depends on the validity period you chose and that can be up to 15 years, as @Judge already pointed out.
