I am trying to forward a subdomain (https://cxd.musedlab.org) to another secure site (https://creativityandinnovation.shanghai.nyu.edu/meet-ups). I’ve added a CNAME for cxd. musedlab org and am using a page rule to forward - Permanent 301 - to the new site, but when a user goes to the site, it forwards insecure. What should I be doing differently so that the user arrives at the new site securely?
The problem here is:
- BOTH domains are not secured completely.
This in first case does not have anything to do with the forward.
I have control over the musedlab.org domain. It is set to full… would setting SSL to Full (Strict) solve this?
That host (cxd) is not so it is never hitting Cloudflare’s edge. Without that a 301 page rule is not going to fire.
Exactly thats the first thing.
As far as I know Full (Strict) SSL requires a valid (or CF-Signed) SSL Cert at the end the domain is pointing to. Which you seem also not to have.
But as we already do have a Staff here, @cscharff is there a simple way to redirect/forward domains with SSL and without, without having to hit the origin Server, as I also plan to redirect some domains completely, but untill now I still have to point them to the origin Server and set up a SSL Cert there to make the redirect happen.
Could Cloudflare not just ignore SSL-Checks at origin if a redirect is implemented at Cloudflare and just verify that with the Edge-SSL-Cert which is implemented? Or am I thinking wrong here?
Because I would love to have Full (Strict) SSL set and still redirect some subdomains without having to setup a SSL Cert at the origin it points to as it anyway gets redirected
If you have a page rule in place to do redirection (forwarding URL) Cloudflare doesn’t communicate with he origin at all, it simply returns a 301 or 302 to the browser to the URL you’ve specified as the target.
Ok thank you, will test it again.
