tried using cloudflare a few years back, it was a disaster, tried again yesterday and still ran into a bunch of probs... turns out i didn't install any certificates on my server after setting up my forum on cloudflare, but stumbled across this tutorial and all seems well now..

----------------------------------

Assuming you have already using CloudFlare or signed up

Here are the steps:

Go to Cloudflare dashboard > Click Crypto > Click Create "Origin Certificates > Stick to the default settings (Private Key Type: RSA, list of hostnames: *.yourdomain.com & yourdomain.com and chose the expiry of certificate: Leave at 15 years)

Next Step: Chose Key format: PEM Default ("Copy Origin Certificate" and "Copy Private Key" and Web Server for Installation to "Apache httpd"

Now go to Siteground cPanel > SSL/TLS Manager > Manage SSL Hosts > Scroll right to the bottom > Now select the domain for SSL > Paste the "Origin Certificate text from CloudFlare into "Certificate CRT" and Private Key text in the "Key" > Leave the Certificate Authority Bundle as "BLANK" > Uncheck the box "Enable SNI for Mail Services > Click Install > Congratulations you have now successfully installed the CloudFlare certificate for 15 years. I hope all of it makes absolute sense; its an extremely simple process. Enjoy your Free SSL form CloudFlare.
