Cloudflare is one of the most important CDNs or content delivery network worldwide. Many pages and online services depend on this platform. If it fails, there is a problem. And we have that problem now, since it is down worldwide and thousands of websites have stopped working. This is a critical issue that makes it impossible to access those pages and throws an error message.
Problems for Cloudflare worldwide
If you have tried to enter a web page and you have found that it does not work, it is most likely due to this problem. Websites that depend on Cloudflare are currently down. You will find the error code 500, as in the image below, which corresponds to one of the many pages that have been affected.
you can enter the website from Cloudflare, where they update the status of the issue. There they have reported an incident in which they are working to solve it as soon as possible. They indicate that there has been a critical error and the service has been interrupted globally in many regions.
The latest update reflects that the issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented. Therefore, it is to be hoped that in a short time they will be able to restore the service and all the websites that depend on the Cloudflare CDN will be operational again without problems.
in your account official Twitter have been quick to report this issue so that users who are unable to access web pages hosted on this CDN are aware that this is a general issue and that they are working on a fix.
Error 500, no solution at the user level
When we browse the Internet we can find certain error codes that tell us what can happen. If a website does not open, these messages give us an idea of whether the problem is ours, at the user level, or on the contrary it is a problem at the server level, as is the case.
If we see the 500 error, as is the case with this global Cloudflare outage, we have no choice but to wait for it to be fixed so that we can access websites normally. It is in fact one of the most common error codes when this type of problem appears when browsing the net.
However, there are different types of messages with the 500 error. In this case we are dealing with the 500 Internal Server Error.
From Cloudflare they have just published a new update of the incident. They indicate that they have already implemented a solution and that they are currently monitoring the results. It is to be expected, therefore, that the websites will be operational again in a short time if no complications arise and they have actually found the problem.
In short, Cloudflare is down globally and that affects thousands of websites. However, they are already working on a solution and in a short time everything should return to normal.
