Cloudflare and AutoSSL - Tips and Tricks

For well over a year now, we've been offering our free AutoSSL service to all of our hosting clients.

AutoSSL is a service provided by cPanel in cooperation with Comodo, the world leader in SSL certificates. These certificates are not transferable, as they are automatically renewed every 3 months.

Cloudflare has also been providing free SSL certificates for the past couple of years. Cloudflare SSL certificates are normally issued within minutes, though installation may take up to 24 hours in some instances.

And this is where it gets tricky. Because of the way AutoSSL validates certificates, AutoSSL is not compatible with Cloudflare. Cloudflare essentially breaks the AutoSSL auto-renewal process, which will cause an outage SSL-wise if precautions are not taken.

That said, below are tips for handling the AutoSSL, Cloudflare incompatibility issues:

1. If you are using an SSL certificate on your website, it is important that you pay attention to the automated AutoSSL emails sent by your web server. These AutoSSL renewal emailers will notify you if your AutoSSL certificate may fail the next AutoSSl auto-renewal cycle.

*Please contact us if you have questions regarding these emailers and we'll work to remedy the situation quickly.

2. Consider purchasing a paid SSL certificate for 1, 2, or 3 years. This installation of your own certificate circumvents any compatibility or renewal issues.

* Purchasing an SSL certificate will prevent any temporary downtimes when activating Cloudflare as well.

_

Well, that covers the basics of the AutoSSL and Cloudflare "issue". Hopefully, you have a better idea now what might occur when Cloudflare is set for your website.

If you have additional questions or need help with your Cloudflare setup, please contact when you are ready and we'll help you Cloudflare for your website.

About your email software reporting an SSL "trust" issue when sending or receiving email.

All SSL certificates eventually expire and must be reissued. When the SSL certificate on your server is renewed, your computer or email software may not recognize the newly reissued SSL certificate.

As a result, you may:
1. Be prompted to approve or "trust" the certificate manually.
2. Or, see an error appear within your software without an apparent option to fix the error.

The quickest fix for SSL certificate authentication errors is to:
1. Locate your email software's account settings page.
2. Uncheck the "use SSL to connect" box for both receiving and sending email. Then save or close the settings window.

Since the SSL certificate settings are no longer enabled, you should no longer see the SSL certificate related error.

Next, we recommend:
1. Exiting or quitting your email software.
2. Restarting your software
3. Then re-enabling the SSL settings you had set previously.

In theory, your software should nicely recognize the new SSL certificate as valid and no further errors should appear.

If an "are you sure you trust this certificate" type of popup box does appear, just click through the view certificate screen, look for the "always trust" settings option, then "connect" or save settings to close the SSL verification settings window.

WordPress 4.9.3 - Going into the tunnel and never coming out..., an article by Jim Walker with HackRepair.com

"In case you had not heard, in early February 2018, WordPress did a double release of versions, from version 4.9.2 to 4.9.3, then 4.9.4 in a matter of two days.

For some WordPress websites, this led to a collision of versions, the end result of which broke the auto-update mechanism for potentially millions of WordPress users."

Occasionally we run into situations where a client's contact form will not allow the sending of form responses unless SMTP authentication settings are explicitly set within WordPress.

Luckily the WP Mail SMTP plugin, https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/ makes this rather easy.

The below screenshot shows the steps required to set SMTP authentication for sending:
