UoL LAMP HowTo Deny Access from the Internet

Tags: UoL LAMP Server HowTo


Apache can allow or deny access based on IP address, but because the LAMP servers sit behind a Pound proxy server all the requests come from the same IP address. Pound puts the original IP address into an environment variable called X-Forwarded-For.

This method was adapted from Deny IP Address using Setenvif.


  1. Add or replace the following lines to the Directory element of the application in the http.conf file.
<Directory ... >
    SetEnvIF X-Forwarded-For "(,| |^)143\.210\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}(,| |$)" AllowIP
    Order deny,allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from env=AllowIP
  1. Restart apache
