I share my problem because I think it can happen to others.
I use Google Cloud. Everything worked well with SSL of Cloudflare & WordPress.
About 10 days ago Google Notice that would open a new VM for our Tier and that we should change it on August 30.
Yesterday my site stopped working, but already warned, after making the change everything seemed to return to normal. When activating the new VM my page opened fast.
However, today in the morning I see that my site is fallen. The problem is not Google Cloud because I can access my site from the original IP address without problems.
In cloudflare I purged the cache, but the site is still fallen. The state of the proxy seems healthy.
I must update some information on my part so that the website works again?.
Or is it normal, I do not have to touch anything and I just have to wait …?
Obviously the change did not like cloudflare. I really need my site to work. There is a lot of work there.
The IP is the same because I had it saved in Bookmarks: I could see the site before and now (I have it configured as static).
The domain seems as if it did not exist even though the configuration seems to be correct.
Any suggestion is welcome
But seeing the capture you sent with the open site, the first thing I did was try with my tablet … and there it worked without problems (!!).
I restart my PC & I used private navigation: but the problem was still there! (These are the things that surprise you from computer science).
Between so much test / error I disable my VPN, which starts automatically together with my PC … and the site appeared !! (?).
I was never going to imagine that it was that the problem because the whole place I did behind the VPN itself.
I tried changing several ip from it: the website did not appear (?).
This is very strange. It seems that CloudFlare after the update of the VM reacts by blocking any attempt to display the page behind a VPN.
One of the modifications I made a couple of hours ago was changing the encryption to “full”. But why did not it work before it is a mystery.
I just changed it to “flexible” but there is no case: Immediately the site stops working with the active VPN.
What can be the cause of this?. Consider that there is any variable to keep in mind to have my site safe but accessible within cloudflare?
I have to do tests.
Thank you very much again!
Sandro: I’m not Paypal.
I understand the security theme, but if it does not allow me now to enter my site for using a VPN, if I activate the strict mode I calculate that the page can only be seen by Google employees xD …
I listened and I’m testing in strict mode. Although the behavior of the site after the change of VM is very rare.
Thank you for insisting with the advice. I did case
