The entire example library held at the live.datatables.net website appears to be not working. It returns a 404 not found for any example URL I have tried : https://live.datatables.net/cenozute/1/edit

Last week it was endlessly looping redirects, it has stopped that, but now every URL is bad

    Your browser is probably trying to use SSL and converting the URL from using HTTP to HTTPS. Try a different browser or find the settings to modify this behavior in the browser. This seems to be a more common issue and I believe Allan is working on a solution.

    Thanks for the info @kkthorngren, I can confirm I have tried multiple browser, and force set HTTP protocol, and still get a reply from the server that the URL is not found.

    The 404 errors are coming from your cloudflare cache (it appears you are using cloudflare as a CDN for your site) and so no amount of browser swapping will fix that.

    When forced to HTTP, we get a 307 reply from your server / cloudflare, with parameters redirecting us to the HTTPS. So cloudflare is definitely pushing the redirections

    I suspect that your cloudflare SSL config has the incorrect setting and it is sending a redirect to all clients requesting a HTTP request and sending them to HTTPS, then when the request reaches your actual server it responds with a 404 as HTTPS is not bound. I have had this occur a few times on sites I manage so I recognise the symptoms. It could also be some corruption of your cloudflare cache.

    From where I am, the replying IP is : 104.22.50.93 (which I am sure is a cloudflare IP) and the cloudflare rayID is : cf-ray: 796795f75a9127ec-SLC (you may need this if you talk to cloudflare support).

    Good luck.

    The url you posted above has https. Currently the live js bin site only supports http. Try this instead:
    http://live.datatables.net/cenozute/1/edit

    EDIT: I did verify this URL works.

    I went to the Download Builder and clicked on the CDN link at the bottom and it works too. The CDN uses HTTPS. Can you provide examples that aren't working?
