Too many redirects error - not able to access website

ExpertTip

#1

Hello

I’m using Cloudways hosting and I simply wanted to check performance without Cloudflare settings, so I disabled it by clicking on the orange cloud icons under the DNS tab.

I also went on to install a custom SSL on my hosting and disabled the universal SSL settings under the crypto tab (do I need a universal SSL when I have my own certificates?)

Well the problem is now I can’t enable CF as my website goes down and I get the error - too many redirects.

How do I solve this? Please help.

You need SSL at both places: Your hosting, as well as Cloudflare.

Alright, so I enabled universal SSL to full and it now works again! Thanks.
