Turned firewall rule off. Still being blocked

Hi I recently setup a firewall rule blocking access from the country I am located in. I turned it off yesterday (over 24 hours ago) and i’m still being blocked. I’ve tried 3 different browsers and 2 different machines.

Am i missing something really basic? Thanks for help in advance! please advise.

What’s the exact error message you are seeing? Do you see the blocks on the Firewall events page?

Forbidden

You don’t have permission to access this resource.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I no longer see registered blocks. The last ones are from yesterday’s date.

Does the error look like this?

If it doesn’t, then it’s not related to Cloudflare

No it does not.

So it must be my DNS settings? My host as screwed them up when they made the changes to setup Cloudflare perhaps?

That’s possible, your origin could also be blocking you for whatever reason

FIXED
Case closed! For some reason, without any changes made by me, my htaccess file is corrupted.

Thank you so much for your replies on this! Stay safe and have a great weekend.
