Hi,

I am using Cloudflare to manager the domain, I add a subdomain cdn.<domain> to spaces cdn by Borrow own certificate, and I created ssl certificate on cloudflare for the this subdomain.
However, it gives me the connection is not private when I try to connect to space cdn.

The steps I am following

Hi there @imj,

What I could suggest is decoding the SSL certificate to make sure that your domain name is correctly defined in there.

You could do that with the following command:

openssl x509 -in your_certificate.crt -text -noout

Or using an online tool like the SSL Shopper: https://www.sslshopper.com/certificate-decoder.html

For example, if you are using www.cdn.yourdomain.com you need to make sure that the www version of your domain name is also specified in the SANs of the certificate.

Bobby
