Cloudflare work with let's encrypt renewal?


#1

So easyengine has the ability to create site with SSL with Let’s Encrypt but you’d have to temporarily disable cloudflare. Easyengine creates a cron to auto renew the ssl but I was wondering does it really work if the site has cloudflare enabled? cause you have to disable when creating ssl but what about renewing the ssl?


#2

If you are using Cloudflare cache the renewal of your LE certificate will fail. Just like when you are first installing it.


#3

With Cloudflare you can use their origin certificates instead of letsencrypt. It’s pretty easy to install it, and valide up to 15 years : https://anystack.xyz/how-to-install-cloudflare-ssl-origin-certificates-with-nginx/

Works fine without disabeling cloudflare for me

Cloudflare conf: SSL: Full (strict) ! <---- that’s the key maybe? A: @ to IP CNAME: www to

DigitalOcean 512mb VPS. Full install steps: apt-get update && apt-get upgrade wget -qO ee rt.cx/ee && sudo bash ee ee site create mysite.com --wpfc --letsencrypt --php7

and voila - https://mysite.com works fine.

Only problem is, that :22222 does not work :frowning:

PS. Should I also be worried about my site not working in 3 months?
