There is a way to deactivate Cloudflare CDN temporarily in WP Rocket plugin if needed “Development Mode”

We recommend getting rid of free Cloudflare. But that is a business decision you must make. We don’t know what value it provides you.

Cloudflare makes it so we can’t tell what is happening. We’re flying blind. We always remove free Cloudflare completely. It slows down sites. And definitely increases 501 server-not-found errors.

Whenever possible we move clients off free Cloudflare. If it is a paid subscription, the quality is better. But our philosophy is a fast site loads quickly without CDN or caching or minification. This are repairs or band-aids for sloppy web design strategy.
