Cloudflare not giving users IP address on Nginx (FIXED)

This fix is probably even simpler than the Apache one: Fix in Wiki

As a further note I actually found out this doesn’t work so well and infact Cloudflare actually gives you the users IP by default now. You can run this PHP snippet to get the users cloudflare IP:

if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP'])){
	$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] = $_SERVER['HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP'];  // If from cloudflare lets switch it all
}
