I have a manged WordPress installation on GoDaddy with CF configured on top of it with some page rules for caching, as well as with SSL offloading. The site is served off GoDaddy only over http.
My blog is pretty static, and as far as I can tell wasn’t updated in the last few days. The CloudFlare configuration was also not updated recently.
As of 2 days ago, CloudFlare intermittently reports my site as being offline, returning 520 errors, and showing an “Always Online” bar at the top. This happens on more than half the page loads.
Note that on a successful load, all the resources are being loaded up correctly. It appears the main page request is the most susceptible to this fault.
I’ve disabled CloudFlare on the site, and it seems to be working with no issue whatsoever. The pages are loading consistently with no issues.
However, I do want to use CF for performance and SSL as mentioned above.
I’ve contacted GoDaddy, and they said they can’t see any issue whatsoever on their end. They also claim to have made no changes to their hosting platform. I was unable to get past tier 1 support though, so I take this claims with a pinch of salt.
I’ve opened a ticket with CF and attached the HAR files. What can I do in the meantime? Is there any way of me seeing the actual issues causing the 520? Can I explore anything else? It’s all fairly opaque to me
