Possible to block IP address on /administrator screen?

Postby baggiesmad » Thu Aug 07, 2008 2:30 pm

Is it possible or is there an extension available that blocks certain IP addresses or only allows certain IP address accessing the location...

http://www.mysite.co.uk/administrator/ ???

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Hi,

You can deny access based upon IP address or an IP block, with create new .htaccess file in your root administrator folder. Add this code into your .htaccess file :

<Files .htaccess>
order allow,deny
deny from all
</Files>

<Limit GET>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 123.45.6.7
</Limit>


Above code will block all IP to access your admin folder, and only allowed for IP address your entered
hope can help you.

You can use the block IP system plugin. I use that to whitelist only certain IPs to access to the /administrator area.

Thank you very much for this information, I'm running a joomla 1.7 website and I created a .htaccess file in the root folder of Administrator with this code and where it says allow from I put in my ip address and now it has stopped any one accessing the joomla back end from a different ip address then mine!.

Thank you very much for this post!!

By the way I have the ip address of the person who had tried to access the back end of my site, is there anything I can do anything about it i.e. report it to anyone?

Thanks
Tony
