    Hi there,

    I just installed a new domain and got the warning after wards to many redirects.
    Did what the installer told me to do, but it's incomplete. It's not a bug, but if you look at it it is a bug in the text;)
    Code (Text):
    Create a self-signed SSL certificate Nginx vhost? [y/n]: n
    Get Letsencrypt SSL certificate Nginx vhost? [y/n]: y
    
    You have 4 options:
    1. issue staging test cert with HTTP + HTTPS (untrusted)
    2. issue staging test cert with HTTPS default (untrusted)
    3. issue live cert with HTTP + HTTPS (trusted)
    4. issue live cert with HTTPS default (trusted)
    Enter option number 1-4: 4
    
    If using Cloudflare in front of site, disable CF option for
    Always Use HTTPS in CF Dashboard Crypto Tab as Nginx will do
    the non-https to https redirect on this end and not require
    Cloudflare's Always Use HTTPS. If enabled it will cause the
    error message: too many redirects
    


    You need to include this part of text also:
    SET TO FULL instead of flexible.

    It saves users from an uninstall, remove db & user and a new install. The bug is that the Let's encrypt SSL won't be created. If they don't realize that they can only give 5 tries with the let's encrypt they won't be happy to wait until they can recreate their domain with SSL.
