Hi,

I'd like to block a person who keeps spamming my message board and actually I thought the easiest way to do this is htaccess.
However, no matter what I try, it doesn't work.
The file (located in the base directory) looks as follows:

ErrorDocument 400 /errors/400.htm
ErrorDocument 401 /errors/401.htm
ErrorDocument 403 /errors/403.htm
ErrorDocument 404 /errors/404.htm
ErrorDocument 500 /errors/500.htm
deny from 66.66.

The custom error pages work fine, but as soon as I add the "deny from" command (in this example to block the IP range 66.66.xx.xx), I get an internal server each time I try to access any of the pages of my site.
Can someone please tell me what's wrong with it? (The server is a Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.20)

Thanks in advance

Is mod_access installed on your server?

It's not my own server, but a Danish FWP, so I don't really know any details about the server configuration.
I just tested the "deny" command on F2S and it doesn't seem to work there either... Crying or Very sad

Seems I have to solve the problem with PHP... *sigh*

do they proxy everything?

I wouldnt expect it to work on F2S due to their squid caches changing everything to http_x_forwarded_for

Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.20 is just a souped up verion of Apache. NVPHost also use it.

deny from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
deny from yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy
allow from all

<Limit PUT DELETE>
order deny,allow
deny from all
</Limit>
ErrorDocument 400 /errors/400.htm
ErrorDocument 401 /errors/401.htm
ErrorDocument 403 /errors/403.htm
ErrorDocument 404 /errors/404.htm
ErrorDocument 500 /errors/500.htm

Yeah, but that doesn't help if you don't have mod_access installed...
