I am upgrading my site and want to redirect all users to goto a specific landing page when they goto my site now. I want my IP to be the only one not to be recirected.

Will redirect the user to domain01.com/upgrading-site.html

Is there a way I can make it to redirect to update.domain01.com/index.htm

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
#this is your the IP that you connect from
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_HOST} !^1\.1\.1\.1
#this is the temporary landing page
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/upgrading-site\.html$
RewriteRule .* /upgrading-site.html [R=302,L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/images$
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/css$

#ip to allow access

Well, let me ask this, with I found something, but can I make the 4th line with the extensions only work in the /upgrade directory? so add upgrade before the extensions so they pick up. if someone goes to contact.php in the root, it the htaccess won't redirect them since PHP is included in the rewrite, so if I have the rewrite rule to only use php file in upgrade dir
