To configure Cloudflare Full Strict certificate into Apache, you can follow these steps:
- Download the Cloudflare Origin CA certificate: First, you need to download the Cloudflare Origin CA certificate from your Cloudflare account. You can do this by navigating to the “SSL/TLS” section of your Cloudflare dashboard and selecting the “Origin Server” tab. From there, you can download the certificate in either PEM or DER format.
- Install the Cloudflare Origin CA certificate on your Apache server: Once you have downloaded the certificate, you need to install it on your Apache server. You can do this by copying the certificate file to a directory on your server (such as /etc/ssl/certs/) and then adding an SSLCertificateFile directive to your Apache virtual host configuration file. For example
- Configure your Apache virtual host for SSL: Next, you need to configure your Apache virtual host for SSL. You can do this by adding the appropriate SSL directives to your virtual host configuration file. For example
