Disabling Cloudflare features on admin pages for content management systems

To avoid getting a site offline error message when updating the admin section of your content management system, we recommend setting a Page Rule to exclude the admin section of your CMS from Cloudflare.

Please do the following on the Page Rule interface (we’ll use WordPress admin section as an example):

1. Go to the Cloudflare Page Rule app.
2. Input the URL for the admin section, which is in this format: example.com/wp-admin/.
3. Place a * before and after the URL, so it reads as *example.com/wp-admin/*.
4. For “Cache Level”, choose “Bypass”.
5. For Performance, choose “Disable Performance”.
6. For security, choose “Disable Security”.
7. Save the rule.

It will take 3 minutes for the rule to take effect.
