SGD 4.4 - Protecting the Administration Console
By Fat Bloke on Dec 12, 2007
Fat Bloke was recently asked about hiding, or really protecting, the new SGD administration console so that administration could only be done from say certain locations.
Well, I guess one of the advantages of making the Administration Console a web application is that we can use the power of the web server to help with this.
There are a couple of ways of doing this but I guess a simple way is to use the Apache Location directive:
Deny from all
Allow from 126.96.36.199
For more info on how to drive this check the Apache doc.
