I'm fine thanks! I hope you are fine too!
Hi Jose, hope you are well, thankfully it has been a while since I've needed to ask anything on the forum . Hopefully a simple question for you!
IMO having the backend protection enabled is enough to keep a good level of security. But if you want more protection you can reuse the .htaccess allowing an IP range; to do that just remove the
My question is what is the simplest way to turn off the IP address restriction on the administrator page so that the developer can access it and login successfully? In the past, they have done a couple of simple jobs and we have coordinated the time difference, they tell me their IP address and I add it to the public_html/administrator/ .htaccess file which says:
#deny from all
This bit of development is likely to take more than one day and as they don't have a fixed IP address would involve daily adjustments and would take longer because we don't keep the same working hours. If I delete the #deny from all would that do the trick?
I'm keen to keep my security as tight as I can, while allowing the developer the access they need. Plus solutions need to be simple otherwise I tend to confuse myself (easily done!). I'd be grateful for your suggestions.
