Integrating Letsencrypt with Cloudflare ON, manually. Possible?



I want to make use of Cloudflare’s free CDN and DNS but I prefer to use Letsencrypt SSL instead of default CF shared SSL.

My scenario is:

  1. Disable CF.
  2. Issue Letsencrypt SSL
  3. Enable CF.
  4. Then copy the issued key from my server to CF.

The question: is it possible?

Any idea on how to integrate Letsencrypt with Cloudflare?
