Missing SSL

Recently one of the customers approached us who was facing the same error. This error had popped up on the screen while trying to access the website from the browser.

On further analysis, we traced that the website was resolving through Cloudflare. The domain was having an SSL certificate installed in the Cloudflare portal but it was not installed in the hosting server.

Also, here the website was using the https, which caused the redirection errors.

In general, Cloudflare provides different levels of security. Some that provide a secure connection from the browser to the Cloudflare server, some from browser to original server, etc. Based on the method in use, it requires installing SSL certificate at the server-side or Cloudflare side.

To fix the error, we manually installed the Cloudflare SSL in the server and thus the redirection error was resolved.


Disable faulty plugin

Very often, customers see this error after upgrading their websites based on applications like WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, etc.

Since the error occurs after updating the website, it might be due to some sort of conflict with the plugins. The faulty plugin which is not compatible with WordPress causes the redirect problem.

In a recent instance, our Support Engineers deactivated all the plugins and checked the website again. After disabling all plugins, we traced the website as loading, So we confirmed that the error was due to faulty plugin.

We then searched for the faulty plugin by enabling the plugins one by one until getting the exact one.

After finding the faulty one, we kept it disabled. Then the website problem got fixed.
