Ah, here it is. https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us ... 0029696071
Just wondering, Why would you want to do that instead of using this extension?
https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/exte ... masked_ip/
Because that extension only shows the original IP of the visitor within phpBB. So if I was to install that extension and check my server logs I would still see cloudflare IP's and not the original IP of the visitor. Implement it at a server level and you see the original IP of each visitor everywhere and not just just within phpBB.
Ah yes well pointed out :)
