Can’t upload Wordpress plugins

It’s the same issue many other people have posted, but unfortunately their solutions didn’t work. Basically everytime I go to upload a plugin in Wordpress it throws an error.

I tried creating an exception on WAF by adding my IP address and the url path /wp-admin/update.php

Then I picked a cloudflare managed ruleset “ Adobe Coldfusion Dangerous File Upload”. Then in the main menu of exceptions I moved it to the top.

Unfortunately it didn’t work.

I’m NOT the tech guy, he just took like a 3 month hiatus and I’m stuck trying to build out my website but need to install like three more plugins to get setup.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

Okay I figured this out for some reason I had the wrong IP address on the WAF exclusion rule.
