curl -k -L https://github.com/cloudflare/CloudFlare-CPanel/tarball/master > cloudflare.tar.gz

Navigate to cloudflare directory and install it in following format.

cd cloudflare-CloudFlare-CPanel-UNIQUE_ID/cloudflare    // Replace your unique ID.
./install_cf API_HOST_KEY mod_cf "Your Company Name" // Replace following details. API_HOST_KEY == You will get this from your CloudFlare panel. Your Company Name == Hostname of your server. mod_cf == It is optional. If set, the installer will try to install mod_cloudflare
