hey, I’d sure appreciate any pointers, I’ve spent the whole day, and now into evening looking and reading… I’m not necessarily stuck, but good grief, this is an amazing education in Cloudflare… free setup.
I’ve got a WordPress site that was originally setup with Cloudflare by a contractor, with the domain hosted by GoDaddy. Everything was running brilliantly, until Cloudflare wanted to change the DNS nameservers the other day.
The contractor is no longer available so I’m on my own and not a network person (me thinking, how hard can it be? lol)
I changed the DNS nameserver for both, and updated exactly in GoDaddy. Waited the requisite period of over 24 hours, and everything is working on the Cloudflare end, GoDaddy says things are a go… and I’ve checked the International global dns propagation checker, and NS is green lights all the way baby, the CName and PTR are what’s red, so that means there’s trouble on my end.
But, sadly, I’m not able to access my little website because apparently the IP is not resolving, so says the error page and the IP address at the bottom of the page… but, once I was able to get into the backend of WordPress Engine (long term memory is shot, but I was helped by blueberry streusel cake straight from the oven)…
I’m able to see that my CName Record, and IP address, and a few other things need to be reset in WordPress Engine, and I’m off now to read all about it. Any wise words from those with experience and know-how would be greatly appreciated.
