Site can't be reached site not secure with cloudfare SSL

ok the is back the A record update seemed to do the trick

However I still get the connection to your site is not fully secure with the cloudfare SSL, whereas on my other domain I get the closed padlock symbol and the connection is secure


oo, I’m geting a 1016 on, Here’s a tip on 1016, Community Tip - Fixing Error: 530 / Error: 1016 Origin DNS Error. But, prior to going to the tip, check the spelling of your CNAME record for that zone and make sure it is

On, on your DNS tab, can you also add a CNAME record called www with a value of, that CNAME record should also be :orange:.

Hi Cloonan

carehighway is https so it appears to be working fine on that

I get the site not fully secure on the cloudfare SSL cert

I already have the cname entry you advised on

So it’s resolving fine, now. :slight_smile: However, you have some mixed content you’ll need to resolve.

will try that


Can you check to make sure your CNAME is www on

I’m still not able to see now seeing DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN on naked domain and still 1016 on

And, following on the comment from @Withheld, +1, yes something is odd. And, that @sabejogar is seeing things working well when we’re not and not when we are is also odd :woman_shrugging:. @Withheld, which domain were you seeing worked fine but with mixed content?

Edit - @sabejogar, on, your origin certificate will expire Jul 1, when that happens you may want to flip SSL to Full instead of Full (Strict).

@cloonan you’re right on the money. It was a copy & paste gone wrong at my end… I must have :sun_with_face: sun stroke or something… :man_shrugging:

Hi Cloonan and Withheld

All seems fine for now on both domains, I downloaded a plugin for the mixed content issue on motionofhealth and then in DNS setting I changed full strict to full, so the settings do differ a bit between the domains plus I only have the plugin on motionofhealth so we shall see how it all goes, but all good for now with secure connections.

Many thanks


Hi All

I am getting the message below on chrome when I try this domain

Your connection is not private

and this on explorer;

Hi @sabejogar,

The site loads fine for me with HTTPS, sounds like a local issue or cached value. Either clear your local caches or wait for them to clear. It sounds like your requests are still going straight to the server with an invalid cert and not through Cloudflare.

hi MVP

i am getting the following error a lot:

Error 526 Ray ID: 4e949f4e3c116960 • 2019-06-19 09:54:33 UTC
Invalid SSL certificate

What happened?
The origin web server does not have a valid SSL certificate.

What can I do?
If you’re a visitor of this website:
Please try again in a few minutes.

If you’re the owner of this website:
The SSL certificate presented by the server did not pass validation. This could indicate an expired SSL certificate or a certificate that does not include the requested domain name. Please contact your hosting provider to ensure that an up-to-date and valid SSL certificate issued by a Certificate Authority is configured for this domain name on the origin server. Additional troubleshooting information here.

Cloudflare Ray ID: 4e949f4e3c116960 • Your IP: • Performance & security by Cloudflare

the site only work intermittently and then I get these error messages

I don’t get this error, but that would imply that you had the SSL mode set to Full (strict) but could only set it to (Full) because the cert on your server is invalid.

$ dig ns +short

The above zone was deleted from Cloudflare about 3 hours ago.

hi Cloonan, Domjh and Withheld

Thanks for all your help on this, but to be honest having so many issues with this particular domain on cloudfare I just decided to remove it and find another CDN and SSL solution.

Sorry you were having issues, @sabejogar and you decided to move away from Cloudflare. If you would like to try again at some point, we will be happy to help. Sorry to see you go!
