Re: Cloudflare IP support

Log into the administrator control panel and check your last successful ACP (near the bottom of the "general" landing page). If it lists your real WAN IP, then mod_cloudflare is working.

Re: Cloudflare IP support

Actually, the rocket loader and the caching parameter stuff depends a lot on the theme and CSS you use. I'm using (mostly) PBWoW and these were necessary because of all the javascript that collection of themes uses. I don't think you can go wrong with the setting I've suggested but if you can enable...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

That's as maybe but what I don't get is there's obviously an issue with Cloudflare and IP's etc. It's reported all over the place here. Why aren't Cloudflare sorting this out? You would have to ask them, really. However, I suspect they would answer to you that: - PHPBB support for reverse proxy sys...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

all of those files will already be cached in phpbb, why do you think you need to cache them somewhere else as well. I have seen nothing but problems around here related to cloudfare. robert Because a local cache is not the same thing as a CDN. Because a local cache is not the same thing as a WAF. B...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

Sure, mod_cloudflare would solve it but not everyone can install and activate apache mod on their hosting

Re: Cloudflare IP support

I have only tested my fix on PHP 5.4.36-0 (which is what is provided by my hoster).

That being said, the only comment I see related to PHP 5.5 is the one where I comment on another suggested fix (which does not work). The code I provided should be compatible with both 5.4 and 5.5

Re: Cloudflare IP support

Did anyone ever come up with a cleaner fix? Nope, but on the other hand, I tested guest user registration and, at least on my board, it worked just fine no matter what settings I used for the "Tie forms to guest sessions" parameter. It's hard to know what to fix when it just seems to work. I'd have...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

Well, I don't allow guest posting so I really can't tell (why do that, anyway ? You're really in that much need for Russian counterfeit "enhancement" pills ?). Sounds like a minor issue, though. Well. It is not just only posting. But guests can't register. Ah, that's more annoying, I admit. I'll lo...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

Ok. I got 5 minutes to look into this again and here is a quick and dirty fix: In phpbb\session.php around line 280, you'll see this line: $this->ip = htmlspecialchars_decode($request->server('REMOTE_ADDR')); replace it with if ($request->server('HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP') != '') { $this->ip = htmlspec...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

the problem is that for many users they simply read that they will get some benefit for using cloudfare and just go turn it on in their hosting control panel. You can't prevent people from doing stupid things. Best is to see it as a educational. many hosts may be turning it on by default without kn...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

Let's be clear, it isn't me setting it up. It is admins for the forum setting it up and then asking for modification support as to why the coloring, or whatever, isn't changing. I wasn't suggesting you were the one failing tho understand how to set it up, really. I was merely commenting on the fact...

Re: Cloudflare IP support

but I agree with Robert, cloudflare has caused problems on many forums. Namely with caching (admin makes a change expecting to see an immediate effect and it doesn't change for a while due to cloudflare). Honestly, that's what happen when you don't know what you're doing. Cloudflare makes it easy t...

Re: What are the "X_FORWARDED_FOR" options doing ?

If your setup is not behind a proxy, then it should not be trusted, which is why the developers chose not to do so. If you have a proper setup, yes you can trust Forwarded For, which is why I asked for the ability to be able to do so: https://tracker.phpbb.com/browse/PHPBB3-10318?focusedCommentId=3...
