Hello,

I'm trying to get my ip with:
PHP:
$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
The thing is that i'm getting a different address with php than from websites like myip.com
I've read that there is no 100% reliable way to get an ip address, but what would be my best option using only php?
Thanks. :)

Hello,
You can try this:

PHP:
	if (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'])) {
		$ip = $_SERVER['HTTP_CLIENT_IP'];
	} 
	elseif (!empty($_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'])) {
		$ip = $_SERVER['HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR'];
	} 
	else {
		$ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
	}
	echo 'ip is: '.$ip;
