.htaccess error -.-

Im currently trying to block all IPs except for certain specific ones, right now im just trying to allow my own, however, when i upload my .htaccess its 403 forbidden for me too -.-

my htaccess file is made in notepad, in order for my host allow me to upload it im uploading it as a text file and having to rename it to change file types, my htaccess file reads:

order allow,deny
deny from all
allow from 888.888.8.888

censored out my ip. >.>

EDIT: WOW, i was looking this error up on google and didnt realize this was a normal forum for a certain host, im currently under another host >.>

Since it’s posted and piqued my curiosity, your “order” is backwards. It should be “deny,allow”
