vBulletin online users show server IP address instead of users IPs
« on: September 09, 2014, 12:10:53 PM »
Hi,

I have recently installed vBulletin on one the domains. This domain is on dedicated IP address. Everything is working fine except online users section. When I see the online users section, it shows "server IP" as client's IP address. It is not showing client's real IP address. Am I missing?

This usually occurs due to revers proxy software. Do you have nginx or varnish installed in front of Apache web server? If it is installed make sure that  mod_remoteip is installed, and you have added the dedicated IP address to the trusted proxy list.

Thanks for the information. This has resolved the issue. I am using nginx in front of Apache on this server.
