I have started using cloudflare today, and have changed my nameservers as instructed. I wanted to check the effect on my site speed but when I try and test using GTmetrix I get a 525 message. If I follow the FAQ help link, it says a common reason for this is using a reverse proxy (cloudflare). Please see screen shots below.
My website (www.greatix.org) seems to be functioning fine and I don’t get any error messages when I navigate to it using safari, chrome or firefox. I paused cloudflare for the site and then GTmetrix works again.
I searched the help forums and found a message thread with someone having a similar problem who was advised to add another A record but I’m not sure if this is also what I need to do as I already have an A record with an ip - I also don’t really understand my DNS records as I am not a techie (you prob worked that out!)…is anyone able to help me? Thanks.
