    Is it possible to install an SSL ( Purchased ) for phpmyadmin instead of using the self-signed? If so, what are the steps to do this?

    Well, that's enough for me to not even bother looking at the mentioned post lol!
    I just keep getting redirect loop errors when CF is enabled. I've tried everything ( turning on, turning off various functions in CF ) nothing..

    CF Always Use HTTPS setting will force a non-https to https redirect while phpmyadmin.sh nginx vhost already has a non-https to https redirect. You don't want main hostname to be Cloudflare Orange cloud proxied as that prevents email deliverability when mail servers to a PTR reverse DNS lookup for your Centmin Mod Postfix MTA mail server outbound emails https://community.centminmod.com/th...ver-email-doesnt-end-up-in-spam-inboxes.6999/

    Unless, you setup Postfix on server to use a 3rd party SMTP transactional email provider like Amazon SES as a Postfix relay configuration, then all sent outbound emails go via Amazon SES instead of Centmin Mod's Postfix then you can orange cloud enable Cloudflare on mainhostname and then setup a Cloudflare Page rule to disable Always Use HTTPS for the main hostname.

    Ahh, I see. So the main hostname should never have cloudflare turned on. Gotcha. But when I turn it off then access phpmyadmin, my browser does not allow me to connect to it because it's an insecure connection. I tried in Chrome, Firefox and safari

    That's normal for self-signed ssl certs, you should have a link to continue through the warning page.
