Wordpress says my domain isn't being routed to the IP's I selected!

I have set up Cloudflare DNS with many other sites before, and it was only this site which had an issue. After adding all the correct records and waiting a few hours, I was always getting the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error when trying to visit my site.

I waited some more only to be brought by the same error, so I went to Wordpress (.com) support (this is where I host my site) and asked them what was wrong. They told me this:

“You’ll want to tell them the domain isn’t being routed to the IPs you selected, and how soon can they fix.”

So I can’t contact Cloudflare support directly without paying which is why I am asking for support here, what should I do?

Welcome to the Cloudflare community!

The most common cause of this is your SSL/TLS Setting within Cloudflare being set to “flexible” when it should be “Full (Strict)”, you can change that in the Cloudflare dashboard under your domain → SSL/TLS → Overview or via this magic link https://dash.cloudflare.com/?to=/:account/:zone/ssl-tls.

Other causes: ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS · Cloudflare SSL/TLS docs


This is probably because your SSL is set to Flexible and it should be on Full Strict.

That behavior as it is how Cloudflare works


Thanks guys! Setting the SSL/TLS setting from Flexible to Full (Strict) fixed the problem.
