For over a day now, Cloudflare has brought my site down (domain goseongguy.com) with a 526 “invalid SSL certificate” error. I am aware of the community tip article for the 526 error, and I know CF thinks the origin host has the problem. I got in touch with my hosting, and they say:
“The SSL is active for the domain correctly on our end, the A record of the domain is not accepting the SSL certificate update. I can see the A record of the domain is pointing to cloudflare, you must contact cloudflare and ask them to update the A record of the domain pointing to Bluehost IP.”
I made no DNS changes or anything, the certificates do not seem to be expired on my server…I don’t understand how this just happens.
I see from previous community posts that many people had solutions by switching from Full (Strict) to Full SSL (not strict). I have already been using Not Strict.
