Subject [users@httpd] Quick Allow/Deny Question
Date Thu, 29 Sep 2011 21:24:55 GMT
Hello all,

I am a bit confused regarding the difference between:

         <Directory />
                 Options FollowSymLinks
                 AllowOverride None


         <Directory /var/www/>
                 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                 AllowOverride None
                 Order allow,deny
                 allow from all

I am trying to lock down the server to only allow connections from my local subnet, so should
I place these Order/Allow/Deny statements in the / directory block, or the /var/www?
