First of all, thank you in advance for those who take the time to respond. My site’s been down for almost a day and I appreciate any tips on a resolution to the following:
I designated my name servers for my domain (tradablepatterns.com) yesterday to Cloudflare’s, and initially had success where my website loaded up fine (on the “Flexible” SSL/TLS configuration), where until late yesterday, my site showed the green padlock on a variety of mobile web browsers.
Later yesterday though, it appeared conflicts began emerging where the mixed SSL nature of my website (as my original SSL certificate purchased through Godaddy had just expired several days ago) created confusion among web browsers. My Wordpress/Mysql site name/URL setting includes the https: value as opposed to just http: even though my previous SSL certificate had expired. Should this be updated to just http if I intend on using the free SSL provided by Cloudflare?
Please go to the following Dropbox hosted file for screenshots relevant to my Cloudflare configuration. I originally tried posting the screenshots directly in this post but this Cloudflare community forum limits new users like myself to just 1 image upload and to 2 links.
In the above file, you can see that I’ve switched my configuration on my SSL/TLS encryption mode to Full (strict). I previously experimented with the Full (self-signing certificate) mode without consistent success.
You can also see from the Dropbox file that my Edge Certificate is Active. Let me know if the other settings that appear on this screenshot appear appropriate.
I’ve also followed the Cloudflare instructions on installing the Cloudflare Origin CA certificate at my origin web server yesterday.
Lastly, please refer to my screenshot of my configuration settings within my Caching section (at the bottom of the above Dropbox file).
I’ve flushed my cache several times and minimized the TTL setting to refresh the browsing experience to my latest changes.
Any ideas will be most appreciated!
