Thread: Home Web Server

  1. #1

    Home Web Server

    I've turned part of my home computer into a webserver with WAMPSERVER.

    How can I block access for everyone except those who have access?

    Maybe some port access only???

    If you don't set it to "online" nobody will have access except those that are local. Beyond that you can use a .htaccess to only allow certain IP addresses to access the server.

    Yeah will need remote access, IP address yes but this may vary. how secure is a .htacess password page? will it block most users and robots?

    The best idea i can think of ,is installing your own Virtual Machine,
    try vmware or virtualbox , and make your own private server on your home machine,
    in that way you can practice the work on your own "VPS".

    Enjoy!

    I like virtualbox, but that part is up to you.

    You can set it to only allow certain IP addresses and then to block everything else

    Something like:
    Code:
          <limit GET>
          order deny,allow
          deny from all
          allow from IP.add.ress.here
          allow from IP.add.ress.here
          </limit>
    Put this in the base public directory - it's very effective... Just make sure to include 127.0.0.1 (localhost).
