In this tutorial, i am going to show you how to access allow by IP address in apache ubuntu users.

Access Apache Server using IP Address Ubuntu

Just follow the below given steps to access allow by IP address in apache ubuntu server; as follows:

  • Open 000-default.conf File
  • Update 000-default.conf File
  • Restart Apache Web Server
  • Test with IP Address

Open 000-default.conf File

Start your terminal and run the following command on terminal to open 000-default.conf file; as follows:

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Update 000-default.conf File

Then add Directory tag for allow access by IP address. we added “”, you can replace which if you want to block; as follows:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  # The ServerName directive sets the request scheme, hostname and port that
  # the server uses to identify itself. This is used when creating
  # redirection URLs. In the context of virtual hosts, the ServerName
  # specifies what hostname must appear in the request's Host: header to
  # match this virtual host. For the default virtual host (this file) this
  # value is not decisive as it is used as a last resort host regardless.
  # However, you must set it for any further virtual host explicitly.
  ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
  DocumentRoot /var/www/html
  # Available loglevels: trace8, ..., trace1, debug, info, notice, warn,
  # error, crit, alert, emerg.
  # It is also possible to configure the loglevel for particular
  # modules, e.g.
  #LogLevel info ssl:warn
  ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
  CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined
  # For most configuration files from conf-available/, which are
  # enabled or disabled at a global level, it is possible to
  # include a line for only one particular virtual host. For example the
  # following line enables the CGI configuration for this host only
  # after it has been globally disabled with "a2disconf".
  #Include conf-available/serve-cgi-bin.conf
  <Directory /var/www/html>
      Order deny,allow
