    So we were DDOS for the last 2 days, and Linode null route us every time we're under attack.
    We implemented Cloudflare then Linode issued us new IP.

    Server is up now with the new IP they provide.

    Anything I should check or change prior to this?
    Thanks everyone for the advice.

    For the software end, I disable Email for the meantime and also disable Image Proxy.

    For Xenforo forum ? You should configure http proxy on a separate VPS/server and set $config['untrustedHttpClient'] which is used to protect leaking your origin server IP and leak your http proxy IP instead as untrustedHttpClient is used for various stuff according to Chris
    Config.php Options | XenForo
