My new client’s website was on a hosting account owned by her old web designer (who had set it up on CloudFlare) who basically stopped answering my client’s calls. The site eventually started displaying an error that says “Error establishing a database connection.”
My client had a backup of the site from a few weeks ago, so I helped her migrate it over to a new host using the backup. I set up her Cloudflare account, pointed her nameservers to the new Cloudflare account, and uploaded the backup.
Everything works fine when I have the Cloudflare proxy off, but when I turn it on, I start seeing the “Error establishing a database connection” message again. It’s like the proxy is pulling up the old site, which to my knowledge is still on the old hosting account. Any idea why this is happening and how to fix it? The nameservers have fully propagated: https://www.whatsmydns.net/#NS/rebeccasvault.com
Here’s the DNS setup in Cloudflare:
Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening and how to fix it?
