I need to restrict access to specific location in payara application. Is it possible in apache2.4 ? I tried using

<VirtualHost *:8181>

    <Location "/dir">
        Require all denied
        Allow from

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined


But this does not work for some reason. It is linked to sites-enabled, so this should not be problem, but I am still able to access this directory, even from other network than


You are mixing directives from 2.2 and 2.4 which won't yield good results.

Do not use Allow/Satisfy/Deny/Order any more.

<Location /dir>
    Require all denied
    Require ip
  • Still did not help. Could there a problem if it is a SSL connection. No errors in log, nothing. – František Jeřábek Apr 26 '18 at 4:23
  • SSL communication must succed before any http communication is made yes, but you are showing a virtualhost with port 8181, are you sure you are using SSL? If in doubt try with curl "curl -v httpX://yourserver.example.com:port/path". – ezra-s Apr 27 '18 at 14:06
