    Hello TAZ community!

    I´ve read the description of CloudFlare services on their website and it sounds good so far. Now I´m interested in your experiences by using CloudFlare services. No matter which services you are using or have used, I´m curious to hear from you guys how powerful and useful CloudFlare services are! Xenforo compatible with cloudflare?

    Make me some output about Incapsula.com seems to be good working alternative. A lot easier to configure as well.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    piercepierce, Are you happy with CloudFlare? What plan you are using? Xenforo compatible with cloudflare? Do we need any customization for XF ?

    I would probably cry if I had to part with cloudflare.

    While I know that the "load" its taking off is static files and not php files(Because you cant cache dynamic content), I use it for the Web Application Firewall, page rules caching etc.

    Xenforo.. you set it up and modify it and fine tune it as you go along.

    You are doing what I do in a day. That is just nutty volume of traffic.

    Are you on a business or even enterprise plan?

    I dont have cpanel.

    Biggest issue is if your ssl is "flexible", cloudflare asks your server for the non https.

    If your non https directs to https... then you will have an infinite loop problem.

    Just change it to full. But that then breaks if you have a 2nd server.... then you need a page rule.

    I always have more uncached bandwidth than cached, I wonder why.

    I have page rules, which have been criticized by Mr Digial Point :) to cache avatars and attachments
