I’ve got two sites on different cloudflare accounts which both have similar issues, which appear to have happened despite me having changed nothing - they just suddenly broke. It looks like they are probably related to https and reatelimiting for which I use cloudflare.
The first one bntmedia.co.uk i get “Page isn’t redirecting properly” errors on wp-admin (its a wordpress site) and on wp-login page I get RATELIMITED “Too many requests - try again in 59 seconds” errors. It’s similar on the other site which is the most recent one to break, but the problems on wp-admin also appear on the actual site.
Changing the URL of the wordpress install to remove the https and revert to http seems to work. I’ve been working with my hosting company who set up a testing site which doesn’t use https or go through cloudflare - everything is identical, except the URL and that works fine, so it looks like its an issue with https side on cloudflare that might be causing the problems.
I’ve changed no settings really on cloudflare for either of these sites. I have flexible SSL enabled, Automatic SSL rewrites enabled, two page rules: http://bntmedia.co.uk/ - Always Use HTTPS and bntmedia.co.uk/wp-admin - Disable Performance, and thats more or less it - nothings really been changed for months.
Any ideas if the issue due to cloudflare setup, and how I can get this fixed. I have cloudflare’s plugin installed on both, but with these errors I can’t login to wordpress at all.
