    Apache web server allows access based upon different conditions. For example we can restrict access to url (mapped to /var/www/public/images directory) from network.

    Apache provides access based on different conditions such as domainname, IP address. Making a restriction on the basis of IP address we make changes in the apache configuration file as below:

    Configuration for Centos/Fedora

    Open httpd.conf file:-

    nano /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

    Configuration for Debian/Ubuntu

    Open apache2.conf file:-

    nano /etc/apache2/apache2.conf

    Now for rectricting by IP we add following code in the above file:

    <Directory /path/of/folder>
                Order deny,allow
                Deny from all
                Allow from

    If we want to allow access to IP begining with 192 with IP address with a specific pattern than we will write

    Allow from 192

    Now save file and restart apache web server:

    apache2 services restart (ubuntu)
    /etc/init.d/httpd restart (centos)
