How to get your site to load when you run into an error after turning on / configuring an SSL Certificate at WP Engine (using Cloudflare as your DNS Manager).
A few things to check:
- Make sure your WordPress Address (URL) and Site Address (URL) in your WordPress Dashboard (/wp-admin) under Settings start with https:// not http://
- In your WP Engine hosting dashboard on the SSL page: make sure your SSL certificate is configured to SECURE ALL URLs
- In Cloudflare: Check the Crypto tab and set it to Full (Strict)
- THE WINNER (usually what ‘does it’) in Cloudflare: Turn OFF DNS Proxy for your CNAME records for the root and www (click the orange cloud so it turns grey).
I hope that does it for you!
