This plugin ensures that your Joomla website runs optimally when using Incapsula
By using this plugin you will have no change to your originating IPs when using Incapsula. Incapsula acts as a reverse proxy and all incoming connections to your website first pass through one of Incapsula’s servers. This plugin will ensure that you continue to see the real originating IP of your website visitors.
The plugin is **highly recommended** for Joomla users using the Incapsula service.
HOW IT WORKS:
* The plugin sets the value of $_SERVER[‘REMOTE_ADDR’] according to the client IP value reported by the Incapsula proxy.
Incapsula gives any website the security and performance previously only available to the website elite. Through a simple DNS settings change, website traffic is seamlessly routed through Incapsula’s global network of high-powered servers. Incoming traffic is intelligently profiled, in real-time, blocking even the latest web threats from sophisticated SQL injection attacks to malicious bots and intruding comment spammers. Meanwhile, outgoing traffic is accelerated and optimized for faster load times, keeping welcome visitors speeding through.
