This issue came out of the blue after an update. I am beginning to suspect this is either a bug or SSL related. i have strict tls enabled through cloudflare.

This error stands out to me as a possible culprit. But curl produces no error when i use the private key and certificate. i’ve configured mariadb to use the same key files and it doesnt produce any errors (other than refusing log in for wordpress. Am i supposed to use the cloudflare API key as a environment variable for the handshake to work? It makes no sense to me that this would be happening since i have other sub domains which have no issues connecting to the database. I know this is an unusual problem considering the time it’s been taking me to fix it and the lack of information about it on the internet.
Anyone have any leads? Thanks in advance.
