ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error when connecting Cloudflare to WordPress

Today I checked the “proxy” box for a website on Cloudflare, and I got a “ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS” error when I visited the website. The solution to this issue is simple:

  1. Click the “SSL”->”Overview” menu option in Cloudflare.
  2. Select the “Full (Strict)” option.

Wallah! Done.

Is this helpful?

UPDATE: I learned that there is also a free WordPress plugin that let’s you use the Flexible SSL certificate on Cloudflare.
