Preventing outside access to my test server

    Hi,

    How can I restrict access to my local Apache web server running on my box. If anyone enters my IP address, I don't want them being able to see my files.

    Is there a way to restrict it so the directory can only be accessed via 'localhost'?

    Thanks!

    Block it via your firewall or restrict port 80 access from the WAN.

    In httpd.conf:

    <Files "*">
    Order deny, allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 127.0.0.1 192.168.0.7
    </Files>

    Now you can access from localhost and 192.168.0.7
