Hello, I would appreciate any help on how to access my wp-admin page.
I switched on Development Mode yesterday morning and added these two page rules, and could access the login page. However I got a 404 error page when I next checked in the evening, and I can’t access the page today either.
I advise against adding a Cache Everything rule to WordPress, as it usually doesn’t go well unless you’re on a Business or Enterprise plan that lets your bypass cache on cookies. Dev Mode bypasses the cache until dev mode auto-disables a few hours later.
For WordPress, I suggest using APO with the Cloudflare plugin ($5/month on free plans).
The Page Rules from the above screenshot should work if you have some caching plugin installed at your origin/host like W3 Total Cache - but that is an advanced way, and you need to understand other things.
It’s better to have Cloudflare APO for WordPress as @sdayman suggested, and you just have to “click” and have it all (or mostly all) done with that, nothing else as usually
Just to note here, you can use Firewall rules to protect your WP-login page - that’s why here we have “Low” for Security Level, while the general Security Level is setup as “Medium” at Cloudflare.
Due to Cache Everything, be sure to setup your cache HTTP headers at your origin and having “Respect existing headers”:
Regarding the DNSSEC, the DS record which you get by clicking the button “Enable DNSSEC” at Cloudflare dashboard, you need to give it (or add it yourself) at your domain registar.
maybe they do not support DNSSEC, or not that algorithm “13”, if that is the case, then you cannot use DNSSEC for your domain (there are topic regarding it either people wanted to put their own DS record to Cloudflare with an older and unsupported algorithm and the “ZSK”)
Hello @sdayman and @fritexvz – thanks for your help and tips. I will keep the plugin in mind!
I managed to access the login through pausing Cloudflare and having a look at plugin settings. I had forgotten about a setting on my security plugin that was blocking the login. The pause feature was very helpful.
