Is this all that is necessary? What does my current host need to change on CloudFlare? I thought this wold be simpler than export DNS records than reimporting them. Sorry for this question. I have not managed DNS for some time.
So i was only able to get a csv file from my old developer. I added my domain and then used the automated feature to pull over the records. Almost all of the A, AAAA, and CNAME records came over as proxied. Would that mean under the old developer’s account, those entries were proxied? And I should leave them as is?
Oddly subdomains did not get pulled over automatically and I had to add those A records. Some I did not proxy (vpn, sftp, duo). seemed like the right thing to do. I saved my changes but have not made my changes at the registrar, GoDaddy.
This error is most commonly caused by one or more DNS records in the Cloudflare dashboard pointing to a Cloudflare IP address. It can also be caused if your DNS record(s) reference another reverse proxy. To resolve this, you should edit your DNS records to point to your origin server’s IP address.
Would it be a problem with a cname record for the website.? Out of the records i was given it had a cname record of domainname.wpengine.com type www. The DNS app gives me this when i try and add it. An A, AAAA, or CNAME record with that host already exists. (Code: 81053)
