I’m currently working to troubleshoot some behavior problems with my site which seems to be linked with caching. The site is hosted on SiteGround and utilising SG Optimiser + Cloudflare integration, but I was experiencing some very odd behaviour and very slow up to hanging page loads until I disabled the SG Optimiser plugin. Now only CF remains active, but I still see some content getting 404 errors on page loads which I’m advised is cached content from a 3rd party source, therefore I wish to start with with a clean slate by removing the CF integration and starting from the begining.
Currently my setup is as follows:
DNS managed by 123reg. A records point to server IP, nameservers (previously pointing to SG NS, now configured to point to 123 NS). - This change negates the CF CNAME records existing in my SG DNS zone and in principle once propagated, I should be bypassing the CF service in due course and accessing the server directly.
At SG level, SG Optimiser plugin has been disabled/deleted from my instance, but the CF service is still enabled, as waiting for NS change above to propagate.
In order to cleanly remove/reset my CF integration and configuration what steps must I take?
- Disable the CF service form the SG host side.
- Reset or delete domain from my CF Dashboard?
thanks in advance.
