Thanks Alexander. But this does not work.

I commented all the "set_real_ip_from" in nginx config. Restarted nginx.

Now the "REMOTE_ADDR" in my php code inside Apache is just my server's IP. So the real IP is not being passed.

If I enable the "set_real_ip_from" inside nginx config, then my php code sees the right REMOTE_ADDR. But the log messages inside Apache are wrong even then....all from my own server IP.

Anyway, my nginx "proxy.inc" is this:

proxy_cache_bypass $http_pragma $http_authorization;
proxy_no_cache $http_pragma $http_authorization;
proxy_temp_file_write_size 512k;
proxy_pass_header Set-Cookie;
proxy_redirect off;
proxy_hide_header Vary;
proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding '';
proxy_set_header Referer $http_referer;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header Cookie $http_cookie;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Server $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;

Any ideas?

PS: I turned that RPAFsethostname off in apache. This seems harmless enough.
