I’m trying to setup my domain with
Ghost.org and could use some help creating DNS records.
I proxied them on Cloudflare but I keep getting the following error on ghost:
Unable to detect a valid CNAME record for
I wonder if this is because of an issue with the Nameservers. I am not sure I updated them in the beginning, and I can’t find a way to update them.
Is there anything I still need to be done?
Thank you for your help!
Here is how it looks like in my DNS settings.
Welcome to the Cloudflare Community.
Thank you for sharing enough information for us to provide a suggestion. Your answer can be found among what you shared here:
The screenshot you shared confirms that you are using a setting that often causes this error. Your CNAME is set to Proxied. A proxied CNAME results in Cloudflare publishing A and AAAA records of Cloudflare proxy IPs. This causes the query for a record of the CNAME type to fail for that name.
You can fix this by making Cloudflare publish that record as CNAME by simply changing that name to DNS Only.
Thanks a lot for your help!
As you figured, I am new here. Excited to learn more about Cloudflare and CDNs.
