I have nginx running as reverse proxy for apache for my website. The problem I have is that all the logs in apache have as the IP address. I have these set in nginx.conf

proxy_set_header X-Real-IP  $remote_addr;

# Set the hostname
        proxy_set_header Host $host;

#Set the forwarded-for header.
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

What am I missing?


Install and configure rpaf module for Apache. For example, see this blog post
