   give me the server ip not any client who send me the info..

 function getIP() {
if (getenv("HTTP_CLIENT_IP"))
$ip = getenv("HTTP_CLIENT_IP");
else if(getenv("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"))
$ip = getenv("HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR");
else if(getenv("REMOTE_ADDR"))
$ip = getenv("REMOTE_ADDR");
$ip = "UNKNOWN";
return $ip;

If you are testing this on your development platform (i.e from the
same computer) then the client IP and the server IP are one and the
same. It will probably work fine when you put it live on your site.

Have you tried $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDRESS"] instead?
