Ubuntu 9.10 Apache2
Long story short, I need to restrict access to a certain part of my web site based on a dynamic IP source address that changes every now and then. Historically, I've just added the following to htaccess...
order deny,allow deny from all # allow my dynamic IP address allow from <dynamic ip>
But the problem is that I'll have to manually make this change every time the IP changes.
Ideally I'd like to specify a hostname instead... something like:
order deny,allow deny from all # allow my host allow from hostname.whatever.local
That doesn't seemed to have worked though. I get an error 403 - access forbidden. Does .htaccess not support hostnames?
