Error 523: Origin is unreachable

error523.png

If you are seeing an Error 523, it means that there is an issue from the origin web server, as it's unreachable.

A common cause is that the DNS setting has changed. Sometimes, hosting providers update the origin IP information for their customers. If this is the case, you need to make sure the new origin IP address for your A record is reflected in your CloudFlare DNS Settings page.

Once make the change in your CloudFlare DNS Settings page, wait up to 5 minutes for it to take effect.
