Getting periodic 523s on Cloudflare Pages


I’m using Cloudflare Pages. Been using it since the beta. Has worked fine before, but I’m not sure what’s going wrong now.

Basically, when I access my site via, it will 523. However, if I access it again, it will go through.

These issues are not present if I type out

Any clue what’s up?

I’ve not seen this before. I’m hoping you have access to the regular set of Cloudflare features. In the SSL/TLS → Edge Certificates section, do you have “Always Use HTTPS” enabled as well as “Automatic HTTPS Rewrites”?

Sorry for the late reply, I was driving. Yes, I have both of these options available and enabled. Would this be the issue? I’m not very well-versed in this kind of thing.

Hmmm…I was hoping those options would do the HTTPS part for you, as if you typed it in yourself.

I can only suggest that you open a ticket, or chat with the Workers devs:
