[RESOLVED] Domain (Medium) and Subdomain (Wordpress)


I have my main site with the domain pointed to Medium (Example: www.example.com). And I have Wordpress installed in a subdomain (Example: store.example.com).

I installed CloudFlare. But if I leave in Crypto as Flexible SSL, it does not work with Medium and if I leave in Crypto as SSL Complete, it does not work with Wordpress.

How to solve this?


Try using “Always HTTPS” (on Cloudflare) and setup your domain in wordpress for https in the configuration.


are you using Cloudflare’s wordpress plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/cloudflare/ ?


Oi Gustavo. Já está configurado assim. Wordpress só aceita SSL Flexivel e Medium só aceita SSL Completo.


Yes, the plugin is installed, but Wordpress only accepts Flexible SSL and Medium only accepts Full SSL. Thank you for trying to help.


i see can’t you use cloudflare full ssl instead + switch wordpress to using https on origin backend ?


But how would I do that?


You sould need to install an ssl certificate on wordpress instance and switch wordpress to https for cloudflare full ssl to work https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200170416-What-do-the-SSL-options-mean- non-strict full ssl allows just using self-signed ssl certificate on wordpress install.


I was able to solve the problem.

Since Medium already has native SSL, I disabled all the DNS entries related to it and left only active entries for the subdomain where I installed Wordpress.

Now everything is working properly. Medium and Wordpress with active SSL.

Thank you all.
