Apache Configurations

Basic Auth

While developing a website, you may wish to hide it from Google and other bots. This can be challenging as spectre still needs to be able to access the site without going through authorization. Here's an example of a working config:

    <Location />
    AuthType basic
    AuthName "Dev Server"
    AuthBasicProvider file
    AuthUserFile /data/wre/etc/htpasswd_users
    Require valid-user
    # Allow access by Spectre
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from localhost
    Satisfy any
    </Location>


Deny External Access to Modperl Server

You may not wish to have the modperl server available for direct communication by external browsers. You can disable external access by adding the following directives to modperl.conf just before the line to Include the *modperl configurations from /data/wre/etc.

<location />
Order deny,allow
Deny from all
Allow from 127.0.0.1 67.227.162.232
</location>
