SSL Error - Way over my head

I host my site on siteground, another service is hosting domains. He enacted his Cloudflare service on my hosting. (siteground) Since I have to wait for him to respond so I can get support, I figured I’d come here and try this route.

I am getting this error that prevents crawling (for SEO).

write EPROTO 140547276986176:error:1409442E:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:tlsv1 alert protocol version:…/deps/openssl/openssl/ssl/record/rec_layer_s3.c:1407:SSL alert number 70

I’m not going to pretend I even have any clue what this means, hence why I am here.

Would anyone have any suggestions or pointers?

You’ve restricted your TLS version to 1.3 only. Lots of crawlers don’t go this high.

Go to your SSL/TLS Edge Certificates settings and set Minimum TLS down to 1.2. (1.1 if absolutely necessary).
