Whitelisted IP still being blocked cloudflare



I’ve just attempted to get an image manually from our server. The response was 403 Forbidden. This was the result:

You don't have permission to access /wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ETA-PUMPS-WITH-PANELS.jpg on this server.

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

Apache/2.4.29 (Unix) mod_hive/6.6 OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips mod_fastcgi/2.4.6 Server at (link removed) Port 443 ] done. 2018-08-02 05:33:28 ERROR 403: Forbidden. The response is coming from Cloudflare.

Can you try requesting https://www.commodoreaustralia.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ETA-PUMPS-WITH-PANELS.jpg from your computer to see if you get it? If you do there is still a cloudflare problem. Perhaps you can send them the above information with our IP address to their support to see why we are getting blocked. The following shows that you definitely whitelisted the correct IP address:

The link worked for me. I got the pump with the solar panels in the background.

The error message you posted comes from Apache, so it looks like the server is blocking Cloudflare.
