Error 1020 access denied while using my own wordpress site

I keep getting error 1020 access denied on my own site while in the WordPress dashboard. I try to update a few plugins and receive the error. What should I do? I found out I need to do something with the site rule but I have no idea what to do. I even get “error establishing a database connection” error because of this and have to keep restarting my host to get the site back up.

If you get a 1020, you should take a look at the Firewall Events Log for your domain at

You can filter by IP address, so yours should bring something up. Clicking on the entry will show you the Cloudflare setting that’s blocking access.
