    As I understand it is also the second step:
    install the CloudFlare module for Apache.

    Is it needed any other step to restore original visitor IP such as settings as I like to keep control within CloudFlare and not managed inside CP.

    I don't believe any additional steps are required, as the module adds the proper entries to track the origin IP address. That said, CloudFlare's support team is the better point of contact for help with their plugin.

    Thank you.
