Comment on WordPress CloudFlare Flexible SSL – Making It Work by Allan D..

@icontrolwp Awesome article and plugin! Keep up the good work!

I have a question. I was on a shared host, from which I bought a Comodo Positive SSL certificate as an extra add-on a month ago.

I have moved from them to Digital Ocean hosting. I am using ServerPilot to manage it, and Free CloudFlare with flexible SSL. I have followed your instructions very carefully and https is working on my website. What I don’t like is the “Exclamation Mark” that is next to my url and the “warning” that comes with it. Here is a screen shot: http://prntscr.com/ct8qtm

I have an “ssl” folder in the root of my backup folder from the other host, on my computer. It contains 2 files. A “Key” file and a “Security Certificate” file. Can I use this ssl certificate with my Cloudflare (and the new web host)? Is it the solution to the exclamation mark problem? How do I proceed to replace the “free CF flexible SSL” to the paid one that is currently just sitting in my computer?

Thank you very much.

Best regards. Keep up the great work!
