XF 1.4 Cloudflare causes problems


Well-known member
There's been lots of discussion on here about the impact of CloudFlare and what CF settings need changing to rectify. I suspect a search will give you the answers.

The weird thing is that I've used CF before without problems. It seems like they started to happen yesterday after the IP of my webserver changed...

Yes, cloudlfare have recently changed something which is causing many problems...again.
I have dealt with numerous reports over the last few days.

Frankly it's extremely annoying - perhaps we should start charging cloudflare...

Try disabling rocketloader.

cloudflare is more trouble than its worth.
It certainly was for me, across multiples sites of varying traffic. Members got tired of getting the "site unavailable" error page, when I knew our site was functioning properly.

I did appreciate their offer to help iron out difficulties for one of the big boards I administrate, but none of my bigger sites are in a position to do tinkering while trying to serve content.

Rocketloader breaks all kinds of things

I've had lots of trouble with it. I just keep it off.

My main site the forum is residing on has been ddos'd 4 times in the last 5 months

I use cloudflare.
