I setup everything on my new server exactly according to tutorials and still I’m getting a 520 error.

I have a wordpress site. I used the one click install. I have cloudflare active as well. It seems to give me an origin error when I pause cloudflare

Hi @kagzienterprises,

This is directly from CloudFlare’s side :

Error 520 occurs when the origin server returns an empty, unknown, or unexpected response to Cloudflare. ... An empty response from the origin web server that lacks an HTTP status code or response body. Missing response headers or origin web server not returning proper HTTP error responses

This leads me to believe the DNS on CloudFlare is not pointing to the proper droplet’s IP Address.

Please check if this is so and if not add your Droplet’s IP as an A record.
