I have some questions related to using our own SSL certs + Cloudflare for our clients.
Many of our clients are using WHM with the autoSSL feature. In normal circumstances without Cloudflare, every 3 months the SSL certs will automatically renew without issue. The challenge though is that when we add Cloudflare to a client’s website, then the certificates don’t auto renew / install and we have to do them manually.
The work around I have been using is:
- Add SSL expiration date to calendar.
- On that date (or just before preferably), I login to client’s CF account and temporarily pause CF for their website.
- I then go into the client’s server about 10 minutes later, run the autoSSL renewal, and its done.
- Go back into CF and reactivate CF for that website.
This has become very time consuming and was wondering what other methods would you suggest, or some tool I am missing within CF to avoid the need for this?
Thanks everyone in advance for your advice.
