Using Cloudflare with vBulletin 5.7.2


I am using vBulletin v5.7.2. PHP version is 7.4.2

Our website is and the vBulletin forums are installed at Forums - Data Recovery Forums . We enable Cloudflare Pro for the whole domain, so the forums subdirectory is also affected.

Before starting installing, I pause Cloudflare on our site. The installation process is OK. And then I enable Cloudflare and then I login the Admin CP.

Then I notice that from time to time, the Admin CP will ask me to login repeatedly, or some frames requires to login, like below:

I have already added the page rule based on the post How to setup Cloudflare rules for vBulletin 5.7.2, as below:

But that does not work.

Are you restoring visitor IPs? If you are not, you will want to. I don’t know if that will solve your problem, but it will be useful regardless.

Thank you.

Yes I do, I add the following lines to the config.php file:

$config[‘Misc’][‘proxyiplist’] = ‘all’;
$config[‘Misc’][‘proxyipheader’] = ‘HTTP_CF_CONNECTING_IP’;

But that also does not solve my issue.
