Web page reloading constantly

I am having a problem where a specific URL keeps reloading in any browser:

If you go that URL it will load and then reload and keep reloading forever. I am hosted on WPEngine and I contacted their support who directed me to Cloudflare as the source of the issue. Please see the text at the end of this ticket from WPEngine support. To debug this I have done the following things:

  1. Grey-clouded my domains
  2. Paused Cloudflare for my entire site
  3. Made sure “Always Use HTTPS” is OFF under SSL/TLS->Edge Certificates
  4. Turned OFF “Automatic HTTPS Rewrites” under SSL/TLS->Edge Certificates

After doing all that the problem still persists.

Text from WPEngine support, they indicated that the web page is constantly reloading due to redirects from Cloudflare:

It looks like the redirect is setup as a 301 coming out of cloudflare.

Server IP Address 104.31.70.118

Content-Type text/html

It also looks like there is a 200 redirect in Cloudflare as well.

200: HTTP/1.1 200

A 200 is a normal Success response. If you’ve paused Cloudflare (it looks like you have) and the problem persists (and it is), then it’s an issue with your site’s configuration at your server.
