I recently signed up for free SSL certificate provided by cloudflare.Within short period of time it is activated but it showing error “521(web server is down)” or “site refuse to connect”.I tried to get solution for that but no concrete solution found.Is anybody know how to set up free cloudflare SSL certificate for my site with digital ocean droplet?
