PHP Function IP if behind a proxy

Next Article

Following from my last post, here is the method to get your IP address if you are behind a proxy.

function getRealIPAddr() {
    // check ip from share internet
    if (!empty($_SERVER["HTTP_CLIENT_IP"])) {
    } elseif (!empty($_SERVER["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"])) {
        // to check ip is pass from proxy
    } else {
    return $ip;

As this method gets more accurate results it is better to use this than the previous function.
