I want to redirect traffic from an offline site to another url.
I have a rest api site that is: api.somedomain.com:1234
With no routes, I return a “status” - “ok”
However, when the rest api service is not running or if the server is down, anything but 200 code, I want to redirect it to: api-fallback.somedomain.com
Is the possible with cloudflare? Thanks!
If it’s not Port 443, it might be difficult to do this. Only the following ports may be Proxied through Cloudflare unless you’re on an Enterprise Plan with Spectrum:
Yes, this is only for testing purposes. But I would just like to figure out if im able to do a fallback server, unless I use an api on top of it. Check if api.somedomain.com is online then point to it. If not, point to api-fallback.somedomain.com
Another approach would be to script this on a separate server. Do your checks, and if it fails, use the API to make a DNS change. This would be completely independent of its / proxy status.
