  • Receiving http error 500 from nginx from time to time on cloudflare hosted sites.

  • LES is affected as well.

    Can’t access LES on my notebook.

    Works fine for me though.

    need to shift out of cloudflare!

    I bench YABS 24/7/365 unless it's a leap year.

  • This why the internet shouldn't be centralized.

    One CDN that's down causes a visible dint in the AMS-IX stats.

  • This is why, you should use your local HAProxy.
    Support your local HAProxy!

    Just switched to using them for a project as I was dealing with consistent L7 DDoS attacks. Never been a real fan of their model but my hand was forced as I didn’t have a better solution.

    X4B maybe?

    I'm in the same mindset for using CF here on LES. No way in hell I'm pointing the site directly at the VM. Incidents like this are a small price to pay for DDoS protection and CDN especially when I'm literally not paying a dime for it and any alternative would significantly increase our monthly operating costs (which at this post are minimal).

    Even with these outages I'm unconvinced we'd have any less headaches using some other service.

    Have you considered cloudns? Seriously considering them, have been for 3/4 months

    I sometimes worry that I'm so correct in all I say, that there might be something wrong with me

    Was considering it but I can’t justify spending over $20 a month when I’m not making money from my site. If it were a business thing perhaps, but I can put up with Cloudflare I suppose considering it’s free

    The one thing I like about CloudFlare is when something like this happens, they always have a blog post soon after explaining what happened, the cause, and mitigation/solution to the issue.. Not many go into detail like they do.

    Surely they're ITIL Certified :smiley:

    Considering their size and the scale of their services being used, that's how it's supposed to be done.

    But yeah, this should be standard practice for Service Providers, big or small.

    20 minutes of downtime here, too much drama in the air.
