Hello,

I use Cloudflare on a few on my domains. But in the access- and error_logs i will see only the IP-adresses of the cloudflare proxy, and not the real ip-adresses of the visitors.

I have been searching on Google for a while, but what is the best way to see the real IP addresses in the logs with Apache 2.4?

I've heard about mod_cloudflare, but this is now deprecated.
What is the best solution?

Does /usr/lib/apache/mod_cloudflare.so existing?

What is the error?
I can't imagine that is outdated. I have the recent Apache version and its works perfectly.

YES. It's present but still its working for me
I have just tested the same on testing server and its WORKING!
I am not sure what has got wrong that its not working on my production server.

I have created a ticket with DA and waiting for their reply

Damn!

I tried installing it again on production server and its WORKING!

I followed the same guide and now its working.
I am not sure what was the issue because I have changed nothing!

I don't think so.
