View Full Version : Secure Admin Access with IP - All versions

05-26-2016, 02:23 AM
I just added a section in the instruction text file to help with a common issue that some people may encounter.

After you install the contribution and test it, you may find that you are still getting redirected to the page you set or to the banned IP Trap page even though you added your IP to the .htaccess script and uploaded it.

What you have to do is a hard-refresh of the browser to update the cache with the newly uploaded .htaccess file. To do that hit F5 on the keyboard or press down Shift and use the mouse to click on the browser Refresh icon.

In the case of a redirect to the IP Trap, you will first need to remove your banned IP from the /banned/IP_Trapped.txt file, save and upload it back to the same folder. A hard-refresh will have no affect if you skip doing this first step.

After a hard-refresh, the page you set or the IP Trap banned.php page will reload, but now you can highlight and remove it from the URL and access your site.

No changes made to the script for the .htaccess file. Only the section regarding this common issue.

No database changes, only 1 simple step, and 2 options.

This is the full package. There is only the instruction text document.
