Server IP Block without Rule "Rule name unavailable"


My server IP is blocked by Cloudflare. I even created a rule where I allow the IP address but that doesn’t work either.

Before that, the country was blocked by me in the WAF until I realized that it was the server IP. Now I even deleted the RULES and it still blocks.

When I reload the WAF page, sometimes an old RULE NAME appears at Rulename that I deleted hours ago!

Not sure why it happens, however just in case, since it’s related to the WordPress, I’d suggest you to whitelist your origin host / server / hosting IP address by navigating to the Security → WAF → Tools → IP Access Rules with the action “allow” for your Website and try again.

It knows to happen due to the WordPress using HTTP/1.0 and empty user-agent, therefore while executing WP-Cron or some other related JSON/REST API request via plugin which triggers the WAF rules (as it should normally).
