How to block or allow ips using .htaccess

Suppose you have a site example.com and in the document root directory of example.com you have a directory “admin” in which you want to restrict the access to others. But you want to give access to clients from some ips.

You can do this by creating a .htaccess file under “admin” directory.

# vim .htaccess file can be like this.

Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from IP_address1
Allow from IP_address2
Allow from IP_address3
Allow from IP_address4
Allow from IP_address5

example.com/admin/ will only be accessible to IP_address1-5
