    There's a lot of really great resources on these forums to read about making CloudFlare flexible SSL work with your set up. Try using the search function at the top.

    George also has tutorials you can follow for setting up a self signed cert for use with full SSL, which I'd recommend you do instead of flexible SSL.

    Also, check out this post i made recently, inside I attached my full domain.conf for WordPress using a self signed cert for CloudFlare full ssl. You might be able to use the info inside for your own site. Also there's some important SSL info inside that George clued me in on.

    The thing is I don't use their SSL anymore :D
    I switch back to plain HTTP only last December.

    Based on experience if you enable any SSL option on Cloudflare, it doesn't respect your redirects place on your nginx config anymore.

    Use page rule, then force all request to use HTTPS.

    oh yes i remember you went back to non-SSL due to adsense revenues under SSL being much lower IIRC ?

    And here in Philippines I still got XP users :)
    Even me love to use XP SP3 ;)
    So to have less headache, I switch back to HTTP.
