I just recently created a subdomain on my host and added it to my Cloudflare account. Everything face value works, but for some reason I can’t access the (Wordpress) wp-admin.
When I visit the subdomain (
example.com) it shows up with the standard landing page, but when I try to access the [ example.com/wp-admin) it doesn’t work and gives:
Is there something obvious that I’ve done wrong? I added the DNS record for the subdomain, is there more records I need to add to access the .com/wp-admin for the subdomain?
I should further clarify.
Everything on my main site works, both (
example.com) and ( example.com/wp-admin) are good to go.
The new sub domain (
test.example.com) works, but ( test.example.com/wp-admin) does not!

This one should help you to get this solved:
Try the suggestions in this Community Tip to help you fix ERR TOO MANY REDIRECTS.
If your SSL setting on the SSL/TLS app is Flexible and if your origin server is configured to redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS, server responses back to Cloudflare are encrypted. Since Cloudflare is expecting HTTP traffic, it keeps resending the same request, resulting in a redirect loop. This causes browsers to display “The page isn’t redirecting properly” or “ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS” errors.
Don’t use Flexible SSL.
The connection between your visitor and Cloudflare is secured, but the connection between Cloudflare and your server is not. You will not need a certificate on your server for this mode. This option is NOT RECOMMENDED.
Flexible makes your site only partially secure - it encrypts the connection between the visitor and Cloudflare - this means they see the
in their browser and the site leaves the impression to be secure! However the connection between Cloudflare and your origin se…
Thank you for the help.
I’m looking into this now and will respond back if there is a solution I come to from this. Another quick question, is strange that the subdomain (
test.example.com) works perfectly fine with no redirects issues, but when I try to access the ( test.example.com/wp-admin) it creates new issues of it’s own?
That’s Wordpress. You could also solve this by editing two or three database entries and changing the sheme from HTTP to HTTPS there.
Just follow the Community Tip and you should be fine.
Or don’t use Flexible and get a certificate for your server to use
