Hi my question is about denying access to a range of IPs but I tried testing with "deny from all" but I am still able to access the site.

The current config is that apache is serving a site through jboss. so for example there is no local "/www/mysite/docs/".

I can confirm that modules/mod_authz_host.so is in the modules folder..

So I added the below to the httpd.conf

Alias /Login-Page/ "--not 100% sure what needs to go here as Jboss is serving the war--"
# I did try the full path the login page from within jboss deployment "server/default/tmp/deploy/tmp/...loginpage" just to see

            <Location /Login-Page/>
                SetHandler server-status
                Order Allow,Deny
                Deny from  all
#                Allow from <<IP address Range>>/24
            </Location>

You may just want:
  <Location />

Is the entire site served by jboss?
