Hi, just a disclaimer, I am a total noob when it comes to this. I am using siteground as my host and enabled cloudfare via their cpanel. The settings could be changed from the cpanel and eveything was fine. Later i installed w3 total cache and linked it with cloudfare (extension) and turned the minifiy html, js etc options on. I later found out that sitegrounds own SG optimizer is pretty good so I decided to uninstall w3 total cache.
I decided that I will let cloudflare do the minification, while sg optimizer can do everything else. But when I went to the sitegrounds cpanel to tweak cloudflare options, it returns this error “Cloudflare API returned error(s): Unknown X-Auth-Key or X-Auth-Email”. My email has been authenticated and I used the API when I was authenticated my cloudflare extension on W3 total cache (did deactivating the plugin cause this?. I am not sure what happened. When i try to go to cloudflare.com then dashboard > speed > autho minify > api and retrieve minifcation settings, the link shows code 9106 “Missing X-Auth-Email header” and code 9107 “Missing X-Auth-Key Header”.
Problem is that I restored my website to an earlier state where everythinf was workinf but now the website is not working. Error 1016 Origin DNS error. I tried deactivating cloudflare from cpanel and reactivating but it does not work. I get same X auth email error. If i remove my website from cloudflare that does not also work. Please help! I have also told siteground of the issue. Did uninstalling w3 total cache really cause this?
Update: The website seems to only be giving me the 1016 DNS error. Its working for others. Even the siteground staff said the same. I cannot reactivate cloudflare through sg cPanel. It gives the Unknown X-Auth-Key or X-Auth-Emai error. However on cloudflares dashboard it says that it is active. I am screwed
