SSL Settings forcing canonicalisation of http links - what have I done wrong?


I am looking after:

Running a screaming from crawl on the site shows that the https pages are all canonicalised to http versions:

However some of my colleagues in the same industry (who also use Cloudflare) do not have this issue e.g. :

Currently SSL is set to ‘flexible’. If I set to “Full” I get redirected to: bniconnectglobal dot com or “Full Strict” I get a 404

Here are my DNS settings:

Please help, this is driving me nuts :slight_smile:

Many thanks,

It sounds like your server does not have a valid certificate for your domain. See about getting one installed by your host. Cloudflare can also provide one if you are able to install it on your hosting plan.

Thank you sadyman

I don’t have direct control over the host, only the domain name reg

Therefore I have forwarded to the hierarchy that do have control of the hosting

Presume there is nothing I can do myself if I do not have direct control over the hosting itself?

Many thanks,
