Wordpress and cloudflare as the host

I’m interested in running the open source WordPress https://wordpress.org/ web software, and I was wondering if my account supported the following:

  • PHP 7.4 or greater
  • MySQL 8.0 or greater OR MariaDB 10.4 or greater
  • Nginx or Apache with mod_rewrite module
  • HTTPS support



Cloudflare is not a webhost, at least not in the general purpose context that you are seeking. Cloudflare Pages can host static sites, but not WordPress.

There is no PHP, no MySQL or MariaDB, and no Apache or Nginx that you can use. You can protect and enhance your WordPress site hosted elsewhere by using Cloudflare in front of it. There is even a Cloudflare plugin available to help you manage Cloudflare settings from the WordPress dashboard.

Thank you that’s what I needed to know.
