    I received the message below on my email yesterday from Cloudflare. How do I fix it?

    “Cloudflare has detected that your configuration is using our Authenticated Origin Pulls feature. Recently, we renewed the certificate that our edge network presents to your origin due to the upcoming expiration of the current certificate on January 11, 2020.

    To ensure uninterrupted service, you need to update your origin server to authenticate with the new authenticated origin pull certificate anytime before January 11, 2020.”

    • If you did the Cloudflare setup yourself, then you should understand the following steps to resolve the issue:

      1. Login to your Cloudflare account
      2. SSL/TLS
      3. If you are using a PC then go to step 4 below. If you are using phone, request desktop version.
      4. Go to Origin server Tab
      5. Under Origin Certificates, click on create certificate.
      6. You will get a pop up showing that the certificate is valid for 15 years, just click next
      7. Click Okay in the next page
      8. Done! Congratulations…

    Thank you for this wonderful guide. How long does it take for HTTPS and the green padlock to start showing after all these settings?
