Install Mod Cloudflare in Easy Apache 4

Issue: cPanel server using Easy Apache 4 (EA4) is showing incorrect IP addresses in visitor statistics. The IP addresses are Cloudflare based, instead of the original client IP address.

Solution: Install Mod Cloudflae for EA4

JPerkster at GitHub maintains a package for this:

https://github.com/JPerkster/ea-apache24-mod_cloudflare

https://github.com/JPerkster

This github project installs the module and adds it into EasyApache so that future rebuilds keep the module active.

SSH into server and complete the following…

Get the package:

wget -O /etc/yum.repos.d/EA4-Mod-Cloudflare.repo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/Jperkster:/EA4_Mod_Cloudflare/CentOS-7/home:Jperkster:EA4_Mod_Cloudflare.repo

Install the package:

yum install ea-apache24-mod_cloudflare

No need to add and provision in EA4 (it’s already installed) – Just restart httpd.

Removal if required:

yum remove ea-apache24-mod_cloudflare
