    According to this page: https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/200170896-Using-mod-cloudflare-Packages

    I assume that this means the same will be coming to RedHat distros soon.

    In that case, should we use just mod_remoteip and forget about mod_cloudflare?

    And does it make sense to have both enabled on a machine?

    Thanks!

    Hello @MajorLancelot,

    If CloudFlare decides to discontinue support for mod_cloudflare (with EasyApache 4) in the future, you could uninstall it and switch over to mod_remoteip to achieve the same results. There's a thread on this topic at:

    mod_cloudflare vs mod_remoteip

    Thank you.

    Actually, it turned out that Cloudflare made it explicitly clear on this page: https://github.com/cloudflare/mod_cloudflare that if using both will cause issues:

    Wonder why this wasn't stated as part of the additional module information in EA4.

    To clarify, yes, you should uninstall mod_cloudflare before installing mod_remoteip.

    Could you provide the link to the specific documentation page you'd like to see the warning on?

    Thanks!

    I think the attached image along with any documentation you may add will serve the same purpose.

    Hello @MajorLancelot,

    While "conflicts" are configured for certain EasyApache 4 RPMs to alert about incompatibilities, that's traditionally only applicable to the EA4 RPMs that we provide. Since mod_cloudflare is a third-party RPM, the best path forward here is provide a fully supported way to configure CloudFlare with cPanel & WHM. The following feature request is open for this:

    https://features.cpanel.net/topic/cloudflare-plugin-inside-cpanel

    I encourage you to vote and add feedback to this feature request if it's something you'd like to see added to the product.

    Thank you.
