SGD 4.4 - Protecting the Administration Console

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:

<Location /sgdadmin>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from 129.156.4.240
</Location>

For more info on how to drive this check the Apache doc.
