Why 403 Forbidden all of a sudden when I go to my site?



I just went to my site (which was working this morning with no changes) and I’m seeing a generic nginx 403 forbidden page. Is cloudflare having a service outage right now?

Suddenly getting 403 if CDN is enabled

No current outages that would block access. A generic 403 sounds like it’s your server that’s blocking access.

Have you tried hitting your site through webpagetest.org or other site tests?


I am suddenly also getting 403. Disabling CDN and using DNS only solves the problem.
Did you figure out why this happens? Any ideas?
