Some of our customers use Cloudflare to manage their DNS as well as to provide other functionality at the DNS level rather than directly on the web server. One of the things that Cloudflare offers is SSL. However, here at Pressable we also offer Free SSL through Let’s Encrypt.
When using the wrong settings for SSL through Cloudflare, it is likely you will encounter errors such as redirect loops. You will want to make sure to follow this guide to avoid any SSL conflicts between Pressable & Cloudflare.
There are a couple solutions to using Cloudflare and SSL on Pressable:
If you wish to use Pressable SSL only:
* Ensure Cloudflare SSL is OFF
If you wish to use Cloudflare Full SSL (Strict):
* Ensure Pressable SSL is ON or valid custom SSL certificate added
Pressable & Cloudflare do NOT recommend the use of “Flexible SSL”
