How to restrict directory access by ip address?

We recommend that you allow access to your admin directory to only a selected IP address.

That way you can secure your admin area from hackers.

What you need to do is create a .htaccess file in the directory where you want to restrict access to specific IP addresses.

For example, if you have a WordPress blog installed on your main directory and log in via example.com/wp-admin, you should create an .htaccess file in /wp-admin/.htaccess, and you should put the following code into it. Don’t forget to replace the allowed IP address with your IP address.

order deny, allow
deny from all

(Replace “Your-IP-Address-Here” text with your IP Address)

You can test this by accessing your /wp-admin IP address from an IP address not mentioned in your .htaccess file.
