Easy integration with cloudflare installing mod_cloudflare

It is possible to make cloudways work with cloudflare providing an additional level of protection against DDoS attacks and catching. It is just an issue of making cloudflare DNS point to the public address of the application on cloudways.

But there is an issue that needs to be resolved. The IP address that cloudways sees on $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] is cloudflare IPs and not the clients IPs. This has a server impact specially in Ëurope with the tax on virtual products where the country of the customer needs to be verified by his IP (plus another non conflicting prove).

By installing the mod_cloudflare on the cloudways server $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] will have the clients IP instead of cloudflare's IP solving this legal issue in Europe.

    This has been done. You can activate it via Server Settings → Advanced Settings → Cloudflare (under Nginx section).
