SSL - Delays Authorizing Certificate

It’s typically within 24 hours for FREE customers, but there may have been an issue. I’ll take a look.

Yes SSL implemented successfully on my web. Thank you so much @ryan

Thanks, I really appreciate it. Let me know if there’s any additional information I can provide.

I added my website a few month ago and itwas running fine but now its saying NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID .

Connectin is not private? any solution

I’m getting ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS. There’s probably some http to https rewrite loop. Are you using SSL in Flexible mode?

I was contacted by an engineer and given a specific CNAME record to add. Hopefully, that will take care of everything.

Thanks, again.


I also face problems with website ( ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR ) as I wait for ssl authorization, domain

Is there a way to deactivate Cloudflare while waiting for this process to end? Please note that I am on Siteground and I use Cloudflare’s cPanel plugin

Problem solved after deleting my site from Cloudflare and re-adding it again. So, for those people who can’t get the shared certificate initialized after 24 hours, just remove the site from Cloudflare and re-adds it.
