Enable Real-IP for WP site


#1

How and where do I enable Real-IP for a WP site installed by EasyEngine?
Site is behind CloudFlare.

Hi,
EasyEngine already have configuration for setting real ip, just uncomment these two line in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

set_real_ip_from proxy-server-ip;

real_ip_header X-Forwarded-For;

and replace proxy-server-ip with your cloudfare ip
for extra details you can refer

Thanks !
I uncommented real_ip_header X-Forwarded-For; and included a separate file with all the CF ip’s.

I found EasyEnginge great and I’ve got Postfix running with virtual boxes from your other tutorial.
Only problem now I have is that all of a sudden, php5-fpm spikes with CPU usage and I really can’t figure out why.

Think it maybe have something to do with WP caching, but I’m not sure how to debug.

We can’t really go directly for debug without knowing output for these commands

ee info  
nproc  
free -m
