I need to import 3000+ items into Wordpress. Each item may also need to store and resize a bunch of images, so I guess it’s a relatively resource heavy process. As I start the import, roughly after 3-10 items are imported, I get a 524 error.
I’ve read a number of guides and forum posts about this issue.
- I think the server resources aren’t an issue as I consistently have 20-70% of CPU available during the import.
- I tried to temporarily grey-cloud the domain, but that didn’t help.
- Finally I disabled Cloudflare on site from the Overview screen. However this also doesn’t solve the issue. I’m still getting Cloudflare Error 524, which I find quite surprising since Cloudflare was supposed to be, well, disabled
Is there anything else I can do to overcome this? To somehow get around Cloudflare, at least while the import is running.
