Support » Fixing WordPress » Trying to limit access to development site by IP via htaccess

  • Hi,

    I have a WordPress development site that I want to be accessible only to my IP address. I’ve been trying to do this via htaccess, but I can’t get it to work.

    First, I tried this:

    # ALLOW USER BY IP
    <Limit GET POST>
     order allow,deny
     allow from 1.2.3.4
     deny from all
     </Limit>

    Then I tried this:

    # ALLOW USER BY IP
    <Limit GET POST>
     order deny,allow
     deny from all
     allow from 1.2.3.4
     </Limit>

    (Obviously, my IP address is not actually 1.2.3.4!)

    Both of these locked me out — 403 Forbidden. What am I doing wrong? (Yes, I did double-check my IP address.)

    Thanks!
