Wordpress admin ssl login issue


I have been using Cloudflare for my site successfully for about 6 months. My SSL certificate has been working properly on my site, however recently, when I attempted to login into the backend dashboard of my Wordpress website via the Wordpress link example ‘mysite.com/wp-admin’, I was given an error stating:

This site can’t provide a secure connection

[my WordPress website] uses an unsupported protocol.


How can I resolve this issue so that I can access my dashboard properly again?


That usually indicates an issue with the Cloudflare SSL certificate:

If you post the domain, we can help you troubleshoot.


Your site is not currently proxied by Cloudflare (its DNS record/s are set to :grey: instead of :orange:). So visitors are bypassing Cloudflare and hitting your web server directly.

Your web server does not have a valid SSL certificate for it.

What is the SSL setting in your Cloudflare Crypto page? It’s usually Flexible, a Full setting.


The setting in the Crypto page is set to flexible.
