How to install mod_cloudflare to Debian based LAMP appliance

If you are using CloudFlare's fantastic free CDN service, you might want to preserve the IP addresses of vistors to your site.

I needed this so that I could use my .htaccess allow by IP feature.

Here's the link where I found how to install it:


cd /root
wget http://github.com/cloudflare/CloudFlare-Tools/raw/master/mod_cloudflare.c
apt-get install apache2-prefork-dev
apxs2 -iac mod_cloudflare.c
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart


This was also helpful when I ran into an error :


apt-get install libtool


Hope this helps someone.
