Getting the following error when going onto my site:
"

Error 523
Ray ID: 7109c9ecbbd09692 • 2022-05-24 23:25:08 UTC
Origin is unreachable

What happened?

The origin web server is not reachable.

What can I do?

If you're a visitor of this website:

Please try again in a few minutes.

If you're the owner of this website:

Check your DNS Settings. A 523 error means that Cloudflare could not reach your host web server. The most common cause is that your DNS settings are incorrect. Please contact your hosting provider to confirm your origin IP and then make sure the correct IP is listed for your A record in your Cloudflare DNS Settings page. Additional troubleshooting information here."


When I check my account, it shows that my server status as "Server Restarting".

What is happening???

Hello, and sorry to hear that you're running into server issues. 

What type of hosting account do you have: Shared Hosting, VPS, Dedicated server, or something else?

Where are you seeing the "Server Restarting" message? 

If you're using a Shared Hosting account, please double check that your server's IP address matches the one Cloudflare is pointing to. 

Any additional information you can provide will help us narrow down the cause of the issue and assist you.
