    I'm follow the guide to set up authenticated origin pulls,
    Cloudflare - Setting Up Cloudflare Authenticated Origin Pulls Protecting Your Origins

    And I noticed the caveat,
    If this is the case, how will I access services on my hostname (such as phpmyadmin) since it's "gray clouded"?

    Nginx 1.21.x
    MariaDB 10.x
    It's on a per nginx domain vhost basis. So if you have 2 nginx domains for mainhost.domain.com and domain.com but you only setup Cloudflare Authenticated Origin Pulls on domain.com's nginx vhost, only that will have such restriction. If mainhost.domain.co is gray clouded but nginx's vhost for mainhost.domain.com isn't setup for Cloudflare Authenticated Origin Pulls, then you can access mainhost.domain.com. But it will fail if and only if you setup Cloudflare Authenticated Origin Pulls on mainhost.domain.com's nginx vhost config file which you wouldn't do for gray cloud.
