Question

Cloudflare causing too many redirects

Hi Everyone!

I recently created a droplet for my website and successfully installed the Lets Encrypt Certificate.

After that, i signed up with cloudflare, turned off the cloudflare SSL and updated the nameservers. Since then, when i try to open my website, it displays the error: " TOO many Redirections".

When I pause the cloudflare, it starts working fine again.

When the Lets Encrypt certificate was not installed, cloudflare and digitalocean were working fine together.

Can someone please tell me how can i correct this error and make cloudflare and digitalocean work together again?

Problem Resolved by changing SSL settings in cloudflare to FULL

If you’re receiving the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error when accessing your HTTPS enabled site that is being proxied through Cloudflare, it’s likely that you have SSL set to Flexible. This should be set to Full (strict), which will ensure connections to your site are fully encrypted end-to-end.

The SSL setting can be found under the SSL/TLS tab.
