Comment (by thesimarchitect):

 Thanks @desrosj! I will look on how to implement your suggestion, so I
 don't have to keep adding that certificate manually after each WordPress

 @ayeshrajans my website does NOT run on an intranet, it's a regular
 website behind cloudflare.

 The problem is Wordpress' loopback happens from and to the server itself,
 locally, and when it tries to connect the error appears because the only
 cert assigned is the cert of origin from Cloudflare, since all regular
 access to my site happens through Cloudflare, except for whatever
 Wordpress "loops back" onto itself and curl requests I have set up on my
 VPS cron.

 Before I also used to have lets encrypt, but the certs keep expiring too
 often and it's always a lot of work to renew them.
