I had posted about this in another topic but someone closed it before it was resolved. Now have my site working fine in all respects but when I unpause Cloudflare I get re-direct errors when in www mode.
Running site diagnostics the only error of note is:
Check if redirecting unencrypted HTTP traffic works
Does the website redirect unencrypted traffic from HTTP to HTTPS?
but I do have force to https running within Cloudflare control panel.
I have enabled Cloudflare on the site again now for you to have a look. whenever you add a www to the main site , or go to the siteurl/forums it will redirect error. The forums won’t work right unless they have the full https + www in the URL.
and after doing and re-enabling Cloudflare yes, everything force re-directed to www but then I still had all the redirect errors and the site would not load, at all! I tried both Full and Full Strict modes no difference, and I purged everything too a few times.
So, for whatever reason, the site just won’t function with Cloudflare engaged, and it used to work fine with Cloudflare for a couple years now. Not sure what happened recently that changed all that.
On this same server I have a different website that runs Cloudflare just fine, but this one isn’t working anymore.
Yes, I will check with vbulletin to see if any caching of the admincp is required, but for obvious reasons I am leaving those rules off!
Really appreciate your help here. I had started another thread on this issue several days ago, but the person who was helping me there Sandro kept insisting that the issues were only on the host side and closed the thread with no resolution without giving me a chance to post further.
