    Exclamation Server attacking itself

    Hi,

    Can anyone explain why the server is attacking itself? Why is the own IP showing in the logs?
    Is there a common misconfiguration i should look at?

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Is it a HTTP service or what? Do you use nginx, apache or nginx+apache?

    Wrong IP detection in Apache. With nginx+apache you should use NGINX to detect IPs of clients proxied over CloudFlare. Remove the mod from Apache, and configure NGINX instead.
