Is there a way to block an ip address from accessing a site? This IP address 126.96.36.199 has been accessing the same file on my site over and over and over again, driving up the bandwidth usage. I want to block it, but I cannot seem to figure out how (pardon if this is in the control panel somewhere, but I can’t find it.)
You could totally block it by adding the following line to your .htaccess file:
deny from 188.8.131.52
Thanks. I added the line. I’ll check my stats tomorrow to see if it works.
