I already had the EPEL repository registered on the server but for those that does not you can use the following commands to register it.
rpm -Uvh http://ftp.crc.dk/fedora-epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpmNow install the module
yum install mod_extract_forwardedAfter installing the module you need to register an allowed forwarder (ie. the IP of your proxy). In all my logs the ip 127.0.0.1 was registered as the client of every request so adding that did the trick.
echo "MEFaccept 127.0.0.1" >> /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_extract_forwarded.conf service httpd restartRecheck your webserver/application logs, this worked for me.
