When I tried to view website www.buddhasauthor.com - around 25 March it did not show up on search or would not go to site when I put address in
I tried Cloudflare and got a 522 error
I asked support and got this reply from Damian on 27 March
Cloudflare staff are not able for making any changes on customer’s site/configuration - everything should be self-service - but we can provide some guidance here.
If I browse to your site, I see a 522 error. A 522 essentially means that Cloudflare cannot make a connection to your web server over HTTP/S ports and is getting timed out when we try to establish a connection. A couple of things to check
Under the DNS tab on our dashboard, check your DNS records and make sure they are pointing to the origin IP of where your website is hosted
Verify that your web server is listening on port 80/443
Make sure that Cloudflare IP’s listed here - IP Ranges are allowed to connect to your web server’s ports and not restricted in any way
Not being computer savvy at all, I wrote back twice (on reply from Cloudflare) on 28 March and April 2 and I have had no further replies from your support. I checked a few things which I don’t know if I was correct so I didn’t do anything yet.
I found this,and my ip address on godaddy is 188.8.131.52
Cloudflare, Inc. (AS13335)|5 min|
2 Ports I found this on clouflare when I checked how to do this1.2, always https, added waf rule blocking all port except 80/443. but pci scan and report compliant as … firewall and 184.108.40.206 isn’t your origin so this finding can simply be ignored.
3 I could not see anything about a ranger on dns and could not find any of there IP addresses anywhere on settings
Could someone please point me in the right direction in simple terms…thank you
