  • How to Protect admincp and modcp from vBulletin 5 by IP restriction using .htaccess

    Hi,

    Currently I do not have access to ssh. Only to cpanel.

    I am planning to secure the admin and mod control panel login page by restricting it using static IP address. After several hours of searching from google, I found that with my current condition, I can only use .htaccess to prevent directory access using IP restriction.

    I have done with the admincp. I put .htaccess at the admincp folder with content as follow :

    Code:
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from xxxxx.xx.xx (MY IP)
    Allow from xxx.xxx.xx.xx (MY IP)
    it does prevent access from other IP except my IP listed on the .htaccess.

    The problem is that I do not find modcp folder. It is still open to public and if I create a modcp folder and add .htaccess with the same value as above, I cannot access the modcp login page. Instead, I was served by directory listing of that folder.

    I also try to put the htaccess on the core/modcp/ but no luck.

    Do you guys have any source or any information I could read ? Or do you have any suggestion ?




    Thanks
