XF 1.1 Board URL in options not changing to https

#1
I changed my Board URL in /admin.php?options/list/basicBoard from http to https but it still hasn't changed on my site. I've cleared cookies and cache and tried other browsers but the source still shows http.

You need to ensure your webserver is configured to accept connections to https and also redirect http connections to https.

This isn't done by simply changing the Board URL. This is very much a server configuration thing so I would suggest speaking to your host for assistance with this.

I should mention that I'm using Cloudflare's Flexible SSL feature. According to them, all I needed to do is get my website to use https.

Did you still install a certificate for your domain? Using the Cloudflare Flexible SSL, it can be self signed as it won't be used, but it's still required for Apache to use port 443.

I can't install a certificate myself as that's only with a Business or Enterprise plan. With Flexible SSL, I shouldn't need to though. Port 443 is open.

But there is no httpd conf setting for your domain for 443, that is why your getting the looping error. That's why you need to use at least a self signed certificate.
