Cloudflare has a timeout setting of 90 or 100 seconds. (Let’s call it 100.) I don’t mind that visitors to my websites experience a timeout, but I have a few operations that I (as a webmaster) often do in my own custom built webmaster Control Panel (not part of CF) that require a page not to time out for 5 minutes.
Because my webmaster Control Panel was built by me, I can add programming to it. I was wondering what the commands would be to pause CF, then re-enable CF? ASSUMING THIS IS THE RIGHT APPROACH, my thinking is that I’d click a button in my Control Panel to pause, then I’d do what I need to do, then click another button to re-enable CF.
Is this the right approach, or is there some way to globally increase/change the timeout setting (in the free version of CF)? Any advice is appreciated. This shouldn’t be so difficult! I wish CF would put a timeout setting in their interface!
