I'm using Magento v2.3.4 and Cloudflare to cache CSS, js, and images. The problem is when i tried to upload the product image from the backend using the same filename and extension, the image uploader still showing the old image, if i turn off the Cloudflare caching, this issue doesn't exist because the file is not being cached. Is there a way to rename the image where the image is being uploaded using the same filename or extension using the product image uploader ?

  • You have to change the image name because clean Cloudflare cache after editing the product image isn't recommended.

No, you can't because when you are uploading a new image ( not replacing it) then magento do that for you ( rename the file name ).

I will recommend you rename image file name if you want it to reflect on browser. But if you dont change file name than it will reflect when CDN cache expire.


I would suggest, disable Cloudflare till you are done with upload images from the backend. Then after you can flush/purge CDN from the cloudflare and enable it in the magento.

If this will not work then follow the below steps:

  1. Disable cloudflare
  2. upload your images
  3. Clear catalog image cache (you can do it from the backend as well as manually remove from the media folder)
  4. Flush/Purch cloudflare CDN
  5. Enable cloudflare, you will see correct images.

I hope this will work for you.


My solution would be use Cloud flare apis to purge cache after you have a change in Magento like products, cms etc.

You may use an observer or plugin to achieve the save after actions.

Read this documentation here https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200169246-Purging-cached-resources-from-Cloudflare


I think the problem is only on your browser, tray on an incognito window or make a hard refresh for the page.
