Hello CloudFlare community, this is my first post here. I’m seeking help on how to re-configure cloudflare for my site without loosing any of my settings and rules.
The reason for all of that is a recent change in my host’s server IP wich led to a continuous downtime for my website, so I contacted them and they told me I need to update my CloudFlare records and by changing the old IP to the new one. to be honest I’m a noob when it comes to stuff like that, so I improvised and went to Dashboard>DNS>deleted the existing DNS rocord that contains the old non-working IP and I inputted a new DNS record with the updated IP… they told me to wait 24h and I did but I got a feeling that I didn’t really change the exact thing that they told me to change, because the site still down. I re-contacted them again and they told me there is an issue in the server, that is another topic.
So what led me to doubt my actions is : I noticed that there are two nameservers that supposed to host my domain and I only took the IP of one name server because in the DNS records I have the possibility to input only one…
So I got a few questions for you pros out there:
1)How to correctly update the IP?
2) Did I misconfigure my DNS records ?
3) Should I believe that there is an issue going on in thies servers knowing that I did some reverse IP searches and I found out according to the resaults of my searches that most of the domains hosted by the same name servers are working just fine?
4) Would it be better to delete my website from Cloudflare and start from scratch?
Thanks alot, I’ll apreciate any kind of help.
