SSL 525 Error handshake

Hi, my domain is hosted at Locaweb.

I’m made all setup with the certificate generated at cloudflare, inserted in cpanel on my site. but I still getting 525 error.

I dont know what is happening, when i test my site with openssl or curl directly to the host, im getting the certificate that cloudflare issue to me put on origin server.

Assuming your server IP ends in 84 it appears there is no certificate configured on your server.

it honestly sounds like you did not properly configure ssl are you using iis? apache? nginx? , so it sounds like you generated a ssl request on your server? than used that request too generate a origin certificate on cloudflare right? than you imported said origin certificate into your server? and binded “https to ip / hostname” instead of “http to ip / hostname”? well you are not done yet you still need too import a Root Certificate Authority (CA) into your server or you will generate a 525 error code! aka a “ssl handshake failure”
or am i wrong? :stuck_out_tongue:
also if you want a quick fix try logging into your cloudflare account selecting your domain hitting the ssl settings page and changing ssl from “full” or “full strict” too “flexible”
