I’m trying to block an IP address that seems to be connecting to my site, registering and then posting gibberish dozens of times per day.
I create a file called “.htaccess” that contains the following lines (and nothing else):
deny from 188.8.131.52
allow from all
However, every time I try to copy the file into my directories on the host, it vanishes. I am at a loss.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
