Check your server certificate. Your server configuration will be most likely broken here.

Best is to pause Cloudflare (Overview screen, bottom right), make sure your site loads fine on HTTPS, and only once that works unpause Cloudflare.

Still not luck, tried changing my SSL status to Full(strict) to Flexible and it shows:

This page isn’t working redirected you too many times.


That’s a bad idea in the first place. Keep in on Full Strict.

For the rest.

And yes, your server is not properly configured for SSL.

Any idea what to do here?

Wrote it already twice.

At this point Cloudflare is not involved any more and you need to talk to your host.

But as already mentioned, your server simply is not configured for SSL and you need to fix that.

Thank you
