different applications in magento,wordpress, opencart, laravel, php, code ignitor, anything which is behind cloudlfare are getting offline issues
BACKGROUND - an agency hosting over 500 websites with cloudflare FREE dns plan and never had issues for past 4 years and this time its a big big issue where 90% of our websites are getting this error, so disabling the Always on will not help as suggested in that post because we are also getting every hour ERROR 520
cloudflare status website shows our region has no issue
we have hundreds of websites with more than 40 plus different host and some websites untouched for years started to throw errors like 520 errors and always online
there are websites and hosts we havent touched with dedicated servers managed by us fully and just stopped wokring from linode to AWS to google cloud all effected
Due to the number of 520s being reported in similar circumstances, we are escalating the issue to Cloudflare Support. The original incident should have been resolved and your issue may well be unrelated.
We recommend checking these troubleshooting tips, if you haven’t already.
everyone of our team, customers, client customers everyone are getting this on and off , you browse few pages and click few times it will show up and then refresh it will be gown, people cannot even checkout to the website and even brwose the website for 10 -15minsutes
everything before July was great but now its months where everyone is suffering
ITS ABOUT TIME CLOUDFLARE takes this seriously as i will have to like other users stop using cloudflare if this continues, its like having a broken website
wahts the point of speed and secueity of cloudflare when the website doesnt even work
disabled cloudflare last night and today for more than 50 websites, and I have now zero complaints from any website user or client, why only 50 as this are the most improtant and busiest sites and our clients were losing sales due to this cloudflare issue . the problem for ecommerce websites as not only just 520 ERROR or just alwyas online random messages but also due to instability of the DNS request the errors were throwing up each and every action of buying journey of a user and since i paused / disabled cloudflare its almost 20 hrs now and no one has complained , we were able to also generate the 520 erorr easily but now we dont get those erorr on this 50 websites
this is why I wanted to bet for a billlion dollar that “THIS IS A CLOUDFLARE ISSUE” atleast in our region and using cloudflare for over a decade we know when something is not right with cloudflare
so before i disable CF for the rest of 467 websites, will cloudflare reply to this ticket and look into the issue or its never going to happen they haven’t replied till date and if they will take more time I may as well just remove cloudflare from all websites and continue to live a peaceful life
as of now still we are getting this error
cloudflare did reply saying they found the issue and they tweaked but still there are those errors poppping up every now and then so the error as of 10th sept 6pm still exist
