I have built a website, primarily for personal use, where I use HAProxy on my pfSense router/firewall for accessing outside my home. I was trying to upload a file and I got a message from Cloudflare that it is too large. I am curious if this is due to the fact I’ve enable a proxy instead of exposing my real IP address. If I disabled the proxy for that sub-domain, would I still get the error?
No, you’d be able to do what you are trying to do just fine.
As mentioned by @jnperamo, gray-clouding the domain you’re uploading on would remove the Cloudflare size restriction.
If you’re wanting to maintain the orange-cloud though, Cloudflare does impose upload limits based on your plan. Specifically…
Cloudflare limits the upload size (HTTP POST request size) per plan type:
- 100MB Free and Pro
- 200MB Business
- 500MB Enterprise by default
If you require a larger upload, group requests smaller than the upload thresholds or upload the full resource through an unproxied (grey-clouded) DNS record.
