Redirect Loops and chains

I keep getting Redirect Chains on website - can anyone shed any light on this?

We tried switching the SSL setting in Cloudflare from Flexible to Full, since there’s an SSL certificate installed on the GoDaddy server, but that didn’t work.

There are also no Page Rules at the moment as well.

Make sure your host has actually enabled SSL here at the origin because it looks like it does not support it today:

$ curl -svo /dev/null --connect-to ::x.x.x.x
* Expire in 0 ms for 6 (transfer 0x556552df3fb0)
*   Trying x.x.x.x...
* Expire in 200 ms for 4 (transfer 0x556552df3fb0)
* Connected to x.x.x.x (x.x.x.x) port 443 (#0)
* ALPN, offering h2
* ALPN, offering http/1.1
* successfully set certificate verify locations:
*   CAfile: none
  CApath: /etc/ssl/certs
} [5 bytes data]
* TLSv1.3 (OUT), TLS handshake, Client hello (1):
} [512 bytes data]
* OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to x.x.x.x:443
* Closing connection 0
curl: (35) OpenSSL SSL_connect: SSL_ERROR_SYSCALL in connection to x.x.x.x:443
error: exit status 35

You can test this for yourself using cURL:

curl -svo /dev/null --connect-to ::x.x.x.x

Just replace x.x.x.x with your origin IP. If you then try http:// (e.g. no s) you’ll see a response.

If you enable FULL you would likely get a HTTP 525 error here because your origin isn’t allowing an SSL connection. Flexible can cause redirect loops (you will need to disable any redirects to SSL at your origin) and is less secure, so do try to get SSL working on the origin so you can use Full or Full Strict.

can anyone make any further suggestions as so far everything I have tried is not working?
