How can i disable Cloudflare in the Digitalocean app platform

Hi all, I setup my laravel app using the digitalocean app platform and it seems that Cloudflare is interfering with the functionality of my app. The confusing part is that I never setup cloudflare, which leads me to believe that it is setup by default when creating a digitalocean app. Is there a way I can disable cloudflare? Please let me know. Thank you

Indeed, as of now, I believe that there isn’t a direct way to disable Cloudflare within the DigitalOcean App Platform. Cloudflare is integrated to enhance security and performance, but I understand that it might not always play well with every application setup.

I’ve used the DigitalOcean App Platform to run a few Laravel apps, and they usually work quite smoothly. So, if you’re running into issues, I’m curious to know more about the specific problems you’re facing. Are there particular functionalities in your app that aren’t working as expected? Sometimes, it’s a matter of tweaking the configuration to make everything work as expected.

Just drop in more details about the issues you’re experiencing, and I will be happy to take a further look. Looking forward to hearing back from you and diving into a solution!

Heya, @michaelsampino

CloudFlare should not be enabled by default for any of the services. Can you give more details on the issue with your domain name and the App Platform as well?
