Using Let's encrypt with Cloudflare?



Have severalf Wordpress sites - (all using Litespeed caching). Also have them issued with Let’s encrypt certificates.

  1. What I’m trying to work out is whether the Certificates/SSL wili work with the basic/free cloud flare service. CloudFlare certainly looks useful both for protection and as a CDN. Tried looking online but there are a heap of older articles about how easy/hard it is so I’m still unclear.

  2. If I go with Cloudflare would you recommend/any need to disable Litespeed? (I appreciate they do different things but will I benefit form a local caching service if I’m using a CDN)

My Sites are still in the early development phase so I can cancel the certificates and reissue etc.

mcdvoice thanks!



It will work, however it will only encrypt the connection between your server and Cloudflare. The connection between Cloudflare and your visitors will be encrypted using the universal certificat issued by Cloudflare.
