I just configured my blog, devin.ronge.name, for cloudflare and it is returning a 406 error.

The error message indicates this is being blocked by mod_security. Can this be corrected or should I disable cloudflare?

see message below:

I've resolved this. cloudflare didn't properly import my dns entries.

Hello iwalkbarefoot,

Thank you for your question. I tested your subdomain, and it is pointed to cloudflare's IP addresses, and loading for me without 406 errors.

From what I read online, this may be caused by cloudflare being blacklisted due to their policy on abuse. Just like anywhere online, some people use their service to do things that it wasn't designed for.

Please feel free to contact us at any time if your issues persist. If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

-John-Paul
