After signing up for CloudFlare's service, we were pointed to a support article describing how to add mod_cloudflare to Apache so that the IP addresses of visitors is correctly reported. I've been trying to follow the directions there:

http://www.cloudflare.com/wiki/Log_Files

However, when trying to run the "yum install httpd-devel" command, I'm getting a config error in the terminal:

Config Error: Error accessing file for config file://///etc/yum.repos.d/WebFaction.repo

Are we unable to add apache dev tools to our account? If so, is there another workaround to adding mod_cloudflare?

Thanks, and happy holidays!

he instructions that you see at the CloudFlare wiki are for serevrs with administrative access, we don't provide that.

Hence, you would have to build your own Apache and install it as a Custom App(Listening on port) by following:
http://docs.webfaction.com/software/home-install.html#installing-software-from-source http://forum.webfaction.com/viewtopic.php?pid=13326#p13326 (it contains instructions for an old Apache version, but they should work for the latest version too).

Anyone else think that WebFaction is nuts for not actively promoting CloudFlare? Sure, I can run my own Apache instance, but you should at least have an app for CloudFlare integration available by default.

We provide open source application installers, not plugins or code for any 3rd party services. It would be up to the developer to integrate their application with them as any other 3rd party service. If you have any questions about the code or process we are happy to answer them.
