Steve here. My site is https://www.theanalogdept.com
It’s about record players. FWIW I don’t do transactions on the site.
I’ve been using CloudFlare SSL Free in conjunction with my webhost (Gate.com) for the past two years with little difficulty. I upload via FTP using FileZilla. That’s been working fine for many years as well
In order to upload via FileZilla, I log in to CF and pause my DNS. Doing this enables my FTP software to connect with the server. Typical day.
Then, about three days ago I noticed that I could upload html files but my image files were being blocked. FileZilla would note that (could not start transfer) in that small window at the bottom.
It’s been doing this since last Thursday. Not sure what’s up. It worked before. Not now.
Only thing I can think of is that I just renewed my Domain Name with my webhost (Gate). Unfortunately Tech Support there has not been helpful. Actually, mostly they are absent and do not engage in chat.
I’m using a desktop pc running Windows for all my website work.
