I have my website proxied through CloudFlare, using flexible SSL. That’s working great…
But I have another subdomain I want to point to my home. This web server cannot do HTTPS, so it HAS to use Flexible SSL [I think?]
However, when I point a browser to http://abc.123.website.com:2086/ my browser automatically forwards me to the https://abc.123.website.com:2086/ version, and I get a “this site can’t provide a secure connection” message in Chrome.
I am using a non-standard HTTP port on purpose - port 80 on the origin server is used for other purposes. I also have HSTS enabled on the root of the domain, but not set to affect subdomains.
I’m sure I’m missing something quite simple here. Any ideas?
