registered users are registered with cloudfare IP

Post by testlol » Fri Dec 15, 2017 3:24 am

I do not know if this is phpbb related but is there a way to change it to see the real IP's?

Yes. Stop using Cloudflare. It causes more problems than it is worth.

No it doesn't I use it and have no trouble at all. Been using it since I created my site over two years ago.

This is odd because I don't have to use that. I believe there is a setting in CloudFlare to show the real IP.

No it doesn't
It most certainly does if it isn't configured correctly.

You need mod_cloudflare installed.....

If your next question is how do I install mod_cloudflare you need to contact your host.

Cloudflare passes the IP in special header value, they are only recognized by Apache if you have mod_cloudflare installed.

It's not a matter of configuring Cloudflare necessarily but having the server/software configured to handle it. If you set it up right you add a huge layer of security. For example you can firewall off all traffic coming over port 80 and 443 except for Cloudflare IP's. ;)

Please bare in mind this is phpBB support not a cloudflare discussion forum.

Don't use Apache. Use Litespeed. So it must be similar.
