“Your request failed because the site’s web server did not respond.” On mostly everything.

I can’t figure out how to setup TLS on my nginx api

What error message or number are you receiving?

What steps have you taken to resolve the issue?

  1. Googled
  2. Changing and reading thoroughly through our configuration files
  3. Restarted docker and everything else. Even redownloading the code from our github repo.

Was the site working with SSL prior to adding it to Cloudflare?

What are the steps to reproduce the error:

  1. Generate Origin server keys.
  2. Put the keys where they need to be
  3. Start the server

Have you tried from another browser and/or incognito mode?

Then you need to fix this first. Talk to your host and get your site properly configured.

It’s not a site, it’s an api and we’re trying to get it to be https

There is no such thing as API. It still is a server and that server still need to work fine on HTTPS before you use Cloudflare. As I mentioned, talk to your host.

I suggest you pause Cloudflare (Overview screen, bottom right) and talk to your host to get your site fixed.

Once everything works fine on HTTPS, you can unpause Cloudflare.
