My hosting is with WPEngine and I have a valid SSL certificate from them as well. I get these errors when I try to access my site. The only Cloudflare SSL settings I have enabled is SSL and it’s set to Full Strict per WPEngine’s recommendation when they host the SSL cert. Thoughts?
Hey @cloonan. Thanks for the reply. I finally figured out that Disable Universal SSL was enabled. I disabled the setting and it started working. SSL is set to Full Strict per the wpengine instructions.
I’m still troubleshooting some of the mixed media issues but the big question I have is when I use an SSL checker on my URL it’s showing the Cloudflare certificate and not the Let’s Encrypt cert from Wp Engine. Is this correct? WP Engine doesn’t mention this in the documentation.
That’s correct. Cloudflare is a proxy server, so visitors hit the Cloudflare server with the certificate CF issued for your domain. The proxy server hits your web server that has the Let’s Encrypt certificate so that connection is secure as well.
Thanks. That makes sense, just wanted to make sure it’s correct.
Now I’m trying to fix error 526 when you got to the www version of my site. Is this because I don’t have a certificate for www? The edge certificates configured in Cloudflare are for tecinv.com, *.tecinv.com (2 hosts). Is there something else I need o be looking at?
Is it better just to set some sort of redirect from the www domain to the non www domain?
Last thing I’m having problems with is I can’t get the lock to show when you visit the site. It will show when I’m in wp-admin but not on the website. I’ve ran several mixed media SSL checkers and they come back clean. Is there another tool available that allows me to take a deeper look into SSL issues?
