I host a wordpress site, http://www.drabblecast.org, at Dreamhost. They recently started offering Cloudflare, and I've been trying it out. (For those who do not know, Cloudflare is a kinda-CDN which caches images and helps speed up the site. It acts as a reverse proxy server.)
Since enabling that service, I've been unable to upload any media file to drabblecast.org larger than 50megs. (Yes, my PHP settings allow for 500meg, works fine without Cloudflare.) After talking with Cloudflare, they confirm that they limit any file through their servers to 50 megs. The recommended that I create a subdomain which is not served by them to handle these admin tasks. Great idea, let's do it.
I did that (uploads.drabblecast.org), and every time I try to log into uploads.drabblecast.org/wp-admin and log in, it immediately redirects me to http://www.drabblecast.org/wp-admin, since that is the URL set in "Settings" in wordpress. Because it sends the browser there, the connection is now through Cloudflare, and I'm limited again.
Does anybody know a way around this? I'm starting to bang my head on the desk. :-(
Thanks for any help,
