I recently added a site to Cloudflare. I have done this several times in the past, and this is the first time I am encountering this issue.
I updated the nameservers from GoDaddy to Cloudflare, and configured DNS. The universal SSL certificate that normally auto-populates did not. I followed instructions found in this community to disable universal SSL, and re-enable it. When I try to re-enable it, I get an error stating, “Internal error encountered while processing change (Code: 1005)”, and cannot proceed.
I have created a ticket for Cloudflare support 2 days ago, but all I received was an auto-generated response that was not helpful. Below are the steps I have taken to resolve this, all unsuccessfully.
- Disabled Universal SSL and attempt to enable Universal SSL - It will not allow me to enable the Universal SSL. I get an error stating ‘Internal error encountered while processing change (code: 1005)’
- Changed my A records from proxied to DNS only, and back to Proxied
- Removed the site from Cloudflare, changed the nameservers back to the hosting provider, waited an hour, added site back to Cloudflare, and updated the nameservers back to Cloudflare
- Paused Cloudflare on-site, and un-paused it
- Added a fictional A record and switched back-and-forth from Proxied to DNS only to Proxied -When this didn’t work, I deleted the fictional A record
- Tried ordering the universal SSL certificate, but the option to order is greyed out, and doesn’t let me click the button.
- Tried logging in via VPN and doing all 6 steps above.
I have a client who is growing more-and-more unhappy by the hour, and am unable to launch their website. I appreciate any guidance you can provide.
