We have a small website running Ruby on Rails over Apache2, and I have been asked to check if a specific IP has been blacklisted from accessing it.
I am almost entirely unfamiliar with Apache and I'm not sure if I've looked the proper locations.
- /etc/hosts.allow and .deny
- the .htaccess file in the root rails directory
- routes.rb in the rails config
- /etc/apache2/apache2.conf, httpd.conf (which is a blank file), and the site in sites-enabled.
I also grepped through /etc/ for anything resembling an IP address and found no hits (plenty of results, but all obviously other things).
Are there any other likely spots a sysadmin might put things?
