NET::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

This error happens when you have a very outdated or the Origin SSL Cert from Cloudflare and you turn off proxy mode. For me ATM the webside works perfectly fine.

Thanks brother…how to off proxy on cloudflare

No dont do that. As soon as you unproxy at Cloudflare the error will come up again. So you can:

  1. leave proxy (:orange:) on
  2. install a SSL Cert on your origin which is publicly valid, then you can unproxy (:grey:)

These are your options, but I would recommend to keep Cloudflare proxying your website.

Brother i am having certificate on origin server tab…i am put code on hostinger server…nearly 18 hour completed. sometime site working properly…after some time suddenly error page comes…please help to what i am do next step…

What kind of certificate is it?


create certificate button and get certificate and key…ca code also getted from cloudflare site…that alll

how i am get correct certificate publicaly valid please brother guide me
install a SSL Cert on your origin which is publicly valid, then you can unproxy

This Origin SSL Cert from Cloudflare is just valid behind Cloudflare (when proxied).
If you really want to unproxy you better install a Lets Encrypt SSL Cert.
For knowing how to do so please use Google to find out how exactly you can set up Lets Encrypt on your Server OS.

Thank u so much brother…one doubt i am do not changing cloudflare ssl platform…but certificate get on lets encrypt site i am telling correct or not brother

Dont worry by installing a Lets Encrypt SSL you are not breaking anything.

Origin SSL:
Proxy (:orange:): Visitor ==(CF SSL)==> CLOUDFLARE ==(origin SSL)==> Server :heavy_check_mark:
unProxy (:grey:): Visitor ==(origin SSL)==> Server :x:

Lets Encrypt SSL:
Proxy (:orange:): Visitor ==(CF SSL)==> CLOUDFLARE ==(Lets Encrypt SSL)==> Server :heavy_check_mark:
unProxy (:grey:): Visitor ==(Lets Encrypt SSL)==> Server :heavy_check_mark:

So if you install a Lets Encrypt SSL Cert you are able to proxy and to unproxy.

I got it brother…then what do SSL/TLS encryption mode setting on cloudflare flexible or full

Always go for “Full Strict” everythinmg else is not guaranteeing a valid/good encryption.

Keep in mind that ALL Cloudflare settings will only apply if you proxy through Cloudflare. If you unproxy (DNS Only) you are just using DNS and not any of Cloudflare`s features.
