Currently, my client has been running in DNS only for as long as they have known. We wanted to change the main
A record and the www CNAME to proxied to get the full benefits of Cloudflare. However, upon doing so the site breaks and I can’t see the site anymore. Is this just a temporary thing or is there a misconfiguration somewhere that would be causing it. The site is unifiedlawyers.com.au.
Welcome to the Cloudflare Community.

Thanks for the response. So I saw after I posted this that the actual response was

Thank you so much, that’s a very detailed response.
In terms of full strict, it mentions this “Encrypts end-to-end, but requires a trusted CA or Cloudflare Origin CA certificate on the server”.
I believe we might be running with an Auto SSL script, I’ll need to double check, would I need to do anything to support the requirement that’s been outlined above?
AutoSSL would typically obtain a trusted certificate. You would know right away if it wasn’t. Your browser would make a big fuss about it.
If you run into any complications with AutoSSL renewal, you may need to adjust some Cloudflare settings. I use ACME, not AutoSSL, so I don’t have specific tips for that.
@epic.network thanks so much for your help. I tried again last night with your instructions and I was able to successfully activate the site using the full (strict) setting that you provided.
Much appreciated for your help on that one.
