Guys, can you please help me with it ?
I have an .htaccess file where I have:

Require all denied
require ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

I would like to deny access for all and white list specific IPs.

Problem is, that I get that error:

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.

Please contact the server administrator, xxxxxx and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Apache Server at www.xxxxx.com Port 80

Please help

This page talks about using IP addresses in .htaccess http://www.htaccess-guide.com/deny-visitors-by-ip-address/   This page will generate some code for you.  http://www.htaccesstools.com/block-ips/   And this page covers a lot of things about .htaccess:  http://www.askapache.com/htaccess/htaccess.html

Sorry, I should mention I'm talking about the recent version of Apache.
AFAIK, these articles are outdated now as these commands are depreciate now.

It appears that you are correct.  Info is shown on these pages.  Like much of Apache documentation, it is a little vague.  One of the examples at the bottom of the second page shows how it must be formatted using <RequireAll>.  Note that one or more modules must be enabled to use these directives.

Require is the wrong terminology.Require only applies to users/groups that are included in the htpasswd .


The setting is deny,allow
Deny all
Allow ip
