SSL 521 error: Cloudflare a-record pointing to DigitalOcean droplet
I have read many posts about this issue but I am still having issue.
Client is using Cloudflare, Full SSL for their website.
I have a ubuntu digitalocean droplet with a web-app that needs SSL.
I have created the a-record WEBAPP in Cloudflare pointing to the IP of my digitalocean droplet. So, webapp.mydomain.com should answer at digitalocean with HTTPS. Note: http works fine.
I have confirmed firewall is accepted https and 443 is open.
I read documentation about adding a cert to the droplet but Let Encrypt says I need nameservers pointing to DigitalOcean.
**Is this a requirement? I would prefer to not have to move the nameservers since the only thing on digitalocean is this one app.
What I am missing here? Thanks!
