I add a site to Cloudflare and try activate flexible SSL plan for it.I was able to add SSL by adding page rules to main domain (example.com) and www as well.It's working nicely and browser shows https also.Then I added SSL to subdomain of my domain "blog" (blog.example.com).But it's not working.

I activate SSL for subdomain by giving URL patter as " *.example.com".

How can I resolve this thing ?

Thanks !

  • CloudFlare's SSL should cover one level of subdomains as covered here, however, you should be setting up your subdomain(s) in their DNS, not with PageRules, so they can be added to their SAN, which likely takes time to reflect any changes.

    Thanks for adding a followup answer. You probably were receiving a mixed content error in that case (e.g., a lock with a line). Can you edit the question to reflect that instead of just "not working" so that it might be helpful to others in the future? Thanks.
