Redirect Users based on IP Address | Apache / htaccess


I'd like to redirect users to an <em>/index/</em> area of the site if they don't have my IP address.

How do I do this?

Thank you.


The <a href="http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/misc/rewriteguide.html" rel="nofollow">mod_rewrite</a> way:

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} ^123\.45\.67\.[8-9]$ # your ip here RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/index/ RewriteRule .? /index/ [R,L]


Is this what you're looking for?

if($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] != 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx') { header('Location: /index/'); }

You can specify an array that matches against allowed IPs.

if(!in_array($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], array('xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx', 'xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx'))) { header('Location: /index/'); }
