Configure WHMCS Bridge with Cloudflare

In this article we will look at how to configure WHMCS Bridge with Cloudflare. As standard, the WHMCS Bridge plugin for WordPress does not work with the Cloudflare CDN. This compatibility error means that the WHMCS section of your WordPress website which uses the WHMCS Bridge plugin will not work correctly or show errors.

Configure WHMCS Bridge with CloudflareThis means that if you are wanting to use Cloudflare for your WordPress site you will need to disable the Cloudflare features for WHMCS Bridge.

In order to do this you will need to set 3 page rules on Cloudflare for your WHMCS Bridge page. Follow these instructions:

  1. Login to Cloudflare and go to the Page Rule app.
  2. Input the URL for your WHMCS Bridge page, for example:
  3. After the final / you need to place a * so it reads* – this will disable Cloudflare on every page within WHMCS.
  4. From the page rule options select “Cache Level” and then “Bypass”.
  5. Add a new rule and select “Disable Performance”.
  6. Add a new rule and select “Disable Security”.
  7. Save the rule.

Once saved it will take a little while to take effect but not too long, usually within 30 minutes and this will configure WHMCS Bridge with Cloudflare meaning you should no longer have any errors when trying to access the WHMCS side of your website.
