    Yes the feature is now supported see the end of the linked GitHub issue it says:

    We've copied over /etc/nginx/conf.d/cloudflare.conf to /var/www/sites/includes/cloudflare.conf if that file exists on all SlickStack servers.
    
    The following line is now added to nginx.conf in SlickStack:
    
    include /var/www/sites/includes/cloudflare[.]conf;

    This means that you shouldn’t add cloudflare.conf under /etc/nginx/conf.d/ directory anymore because SlickStack will auto-delete. Instead put that file under the new directory structure which is /var/www/sites/includes/

    It is your responsibility (currently) to ensure cloudflare.conf is properly formatted because SlickStack will not validate the syntax for you

    For those interested, SlickStack will soon have our own cloudflare.conf that is pre-formatted for everyone to use, and can be installed automatically:

    It ensures that your origin server, security/analytics software etc can see the “real” IP address of users or bots visiting your website, instead of just the Cloudflare IP addresses… some devs use this for better stats or filtering etc.

    BOOM this is now 100% working in SlickStack, and the IP ranges are auto-updated using SlickStack’s built in cron job schedule…

    NGINX_CLOUDFLARE_IPS="true"

    Just make sure your ss-config has this line set to true

    And that’s it. Or you can manually run ss install nginx cloudflare ips if you want to install/update the cloudflare.conf manually. Or just reinstall SlickStack will also accomplish this also…
