Some notes:

  • Requires CURL PHP extension to be installed an enabled.
  • You can remove the first cloudflare call if you know the ID to that specific zone. less calls are better.
  • Currently uses https://ipinfo.io to work.
  • Make sure to run in cron or schedule it to run. (currently I run every 5 minutes)

You can add your own error logs (make sure to assign $error_log to a writable location):
if no IP present (add before die(); within the IP check conditional statement)

error_log("unable to get public IP: ".print_r($public_ip ,true)."\n", 3, $error_log);

if update fails (add to end of script)

$output = json_decode($output);
if (!isset($output->success) || !$output->success) {
    error_log("cloudflare DNS Update: ".print_r($output ,true)."\n", 3, $error_log);
}
