Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have multiple domains pointing to the same site.


I have www.admin-domain.com pointing to /var/www

I have www.test.com pointing to /var/www/test directory and this is OK.


www.admin-domain.com/test shows the same content as www.test.com

Using a .htaccess file how do I block www.admin-domain.com/test ?

Drop a .htaccess file into /var/www with belows content:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^www\.admin-domain\.com [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/test/.*
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [F,L]

but your example seems to contradict to what you said before.

I tried as you said but I still have access to <code>www.admin-domain.com/test</code> –  stevs986 Nov 3 '11 at 16:07

Create a .htaccess in the /var/www/test directory with the following contents

RewriteEngine On
RewriteConnd %{HTTP_HOST} !www.test.com$
RewriteRule (.*) - [F]

If the vhost accessing the file isn't www.test.com then the server will return a 403 Forbidden message.
