When domains are already managed by Cloudflare DNS

OS type and version AlmaLinux 9.3
Webmin version 2.105
Virtualmin version 7.10.0 Pro
Related packages Cloud DNS


Wanted to start out first by saying that I appreciate Virtualmin, the developers, and the community very much. It’s an incredibly useful tool.

My issue is that I have 10 virtual servers whose DNS is managed by Cloudflare. I upgraded to Virtualmin Pro this morning, setup the Cloud DNS, and turned it on in the settings for one of my virtual servers. I was surprised that the default behavior was to upload Virtualmin’s “DNS Record Suggestions” to Cloudflare rather than give me the option to pull my DNS records from Cloudflare first.

I am not sure if this is a bug or intended, but it might be helpful to somehow implement the option to pull records from Cloudflare before replacing them.

For anyone in the future who experiences this, a workaround is to first export your DNS records from Cloudflare into a text file, manually edit the records in Virtualmin, and then turn on Cloud DNS.
