SSL setting using Cloudflare


Recently I started a new website on WordPress and also added cloudflare on this website. Now i want to add ssl certificate on this website using Cloudflare. Please suggest me the steps, how can I add cloudflare https on my website.



you are looking for which one

cloudflare full ssl
cloudflare flexible ssl


Cloudflare flexible ssl.


1st thing is with flexible ssl … do not install ssl on server

Step 1: Configuring CF Under Crypto tab

Enable Flexible SSL

Redirect all http request to https

Fix Mixed Content Issue

Now CF is configured … but will cause infinte loop on WP dashboard

Step 2 Add below code in wp-config.php just before this line /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */
This will stop infinite loop on dashboard.

 define('FORCE_SSL_ADMIN', true);
// in some setups HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO might contain 
// a comma-separated list e.g. http,https
// so check for https existence
if (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO'], 'https') !== false)
