redirect loop issues cloudflare

Hi

After activation of Cloudflare - Free and changing the required www settings and dns server.
Flushed Cloudflare cache.
Flushed all cookies in browser. (Chrome + Firefox)
waited about 15 hours

or are there other places I need to change things inside VB4's php or Nginx config files?
Thanks inadvance.

    There is no "relaxed" do you mean Flexible
    i changed if from off to relax (How long does it take until the settings work)
    i use self-signed SSL Certificate (Can be the probleme?)

    my SSL Setting in Nginx

    server {
    listen 80;
    server_name example.com;
    return 301 https://$server_name$request_uri;
    }

    If you have SSL on your web server change SSL in Cloudflare (Crypto tab) to full otherwise if you don't have a SSL on your web server then disable SSL in Cloudflare.

  • sounds like cloudflare(https) fetches from port 80 of real host which redirects to https on cloudflare. you probably need to tell cloudflare to fetch data from https of the real host OR get rid of your redirect in nginx.

    @Falzo
    How do I do that

  • eraser said: i get ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS on chrome

    Wordpress ? If so, disable Cloudflare, wait a bit, and put http:// and not https:// inside Wordpress URLs of Dashboard. Re-Enable Cloudflare and the problem is gone away.
    Otherwise change, its an example, with adminer.

    If at first you don't succeed, call it v1.0!

    I don't use cloudflare, so can't exactly tell, but at some point you most probably need to specify the target/your server/domainname whatever... I'd guess there has to be any option on what protocol to use for fetching that data.

    otherwise disable your redirect rule in nginx and work from there. as @johnnymatt suggested look if you can change the board-url/servername in your vBB control panel to have it use https:// ...

    Oops.. Yup.. I meant Flexible
    Its Usually Instant.. may be you can Try a Proxy to check the results.

    1. Install the SSL on your Domain ( make sure the ssl is valid for www and non www )
    2. Add SSL to your domain ( via cpanel , CLI or whatever )
    3. Add This to your .htaccess :

    RewriteEngine On RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://www.example.com/$1 [R,L]

    In the above code try experimenting with "https://www" or simply "https://" if u face any errors. Once its works without CloudFlare, Turn on the CloudFlare fr the domain.

    Lastly ,In cloudFlare Turn SSL Setting to "Flexible" or Whatver suits you.

    This is what im doing over 2 of my Forums using XenForo.

    just use, cloudflare page rules, set to always use https, you're good to go if you don't want change nginx conf.
