I using Piwik to track my websites visitors. As a matter of "security" I only allow the access to
index.php a few known IPs. My problem is that the Piwik opt-out snippet is only available via this
I tried to solve this via
Files directives but I won't able to allow only the specific URL parameter and let others deny.
For all those people who don't know (much) Piwik but Apache here a the basic points:
- The administrative GUI is available via
index.phpwhich it's access is limited to known IPs.
- The Piwik opt-out snippet is only available via
index.phpwith a known parameter set:
What I want is:
- Deny access to
index.phpfrom all unknown IPs but known IPs. (done)
- Allow access to the opt-out parameter set for
index.phpfrom all IPs. (pending)
How to only allow URLs with specific parameter in Apache?
Order allow,deny Allow from all <Files "index.php"> Order allow,deny Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.1 </Files> RewriteEngine On RewriteRule ^/piwik-opt-out.html$ index.php?module=CoreAdminHome&action=optOut [L] <Location "/piwik-opt-out.html"> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location>
