Error 522 on Forwarding URL

I have set up domain forwarding but I am receiving a 522 Error when typing a url directly into Microsoft Edge.

I expect this to forward to on which my smugmug site is linked.

Previously my site was on the first url in this post, however I changed this earlier today to be on the second url.

Am I being impatient and this will take some time to resolve or is there an underlying issue?


There are several issues. Forwarding, as well as your second site’s setup.

  1. Forwarding forwards properly. Its “www” record however does not. You are probably missing an asterisk in your page rule. Post a screenshot of your page rule list.
  2. Setup does not seem to be set up properly either. Are you sure that is configured correctly on your server? Do you have a certificate there? Pause Cloudflare for now and try to fix the site first.

Thanks for the reply sandro. Page Rules

Could you explain the issues you are seeing with It is a SmugMug website, I don’t have access to the server. I’m not certain there are server side issues, perahps I have set up Cloudfare incorrectly for this site a well? Note I do not have any Page Rules set up for this url, perhaps I should?

Drop the first page rule and prepend the second one with an asterisk.

As for the second domain, you best pause Cloudflare for now and make sure the site loads fine and only then enable Cloudflare.

Thanks sandro. Will amend the Page Rules.

I can confirm the second url works fine, there are no issues with this site that I can see. It loads fine n several different PCs.

Can I confirm, should I be changing the rule so it has the yellow highlighted section?

This is from Redirecting One Domain to Another

That’s exactly the issue. “www” works, the naked domain does not but redirects to a 404.

You could configure a second redirect for the second domain from the naked domain to “www” but that’s rather a workaround.

ok. So something like this:

first url Page Rule

second url Page Rule

Precisely, that should work.
