Wrong SSL valid date

Hello. My website is https://vnkeyfc.com, and it use host from SiteGround, but SSL from both SiteGround and CloudFlare.

The SSL expiration date show on my website (as seen in this screenshot: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/473701973309390860/906180845637894214/unknown.png) is Dec 14 2021, but in the Certificate Transparency Notification which Cloudflare send to me, it say:

Log date: 2021-11-05 14:15:41 UTC
Issuer: CN=R3,O=Let’s Encrypt,C=US
Validity: 2021-11-05 13:15:41 UTC - 2022-02-03 13:15:40 UTC
DNS Names: …

I contacted to SiteGround Support, they also confirmed with me that their SSL for my website will expired in 2022-02-03, and they explained that the wrong SSL valid date shown on my website is due CloudFlare cache.

How can I clear the CloudFlare cache for SSL only? I tried many time but the valid date keep show as Dec 14 2021. I am worrying that after Dec 14, my site will get error.

Please help me, thanks a lot!

That’s still a month away. Cloudflare will request a new certificate a week or two before it expires.

My problem is, CloudFlare saying the SSL certificate will expired on 2022-02-03 , meanwhile the expired date shown on my website is 2021-12-14 .

That’s just Cloudflare monitoring public records (https://crt.sh) for your domain. So that’s just the certificate that Siteground created for your server, which is not the same certificate that Cloudflare put on the proxy server for your site.

I see, good to know! Thanks a lot!
