Apache: How to have a whitelist of IP addresses that can access files in .htaccess

If you want Apache to only allow access to files/directories that match a set of IP addresses you can use this:

  1. <Files admin_panel.php>
  2. Order deny,allow
  3. Deny from all
  4. Allow from x.x.x.x localhost
  5. </Files>

Remember to change admin_panel.php and X.X.X.X to your details
