    testing .htaccess deny/allow script

    i got this script from the tutorials page to add to my .htaccess file:
    order allow,deny
    deny from
    deny from 012.34.5.
    allow from all

    i added my webserver ip address, but i was still allowed onto the site. if i changed "allow from none", then no access was allowed. i have a list of ip's that i want to block. why was my address still allowed to enter the site, is it because my ip and the servers is the same? i would like to test the above script with someone is interested.
    tnx, bob

    If you're on localhost, you're IP according to you're Apache is (loopback), not whatever you're adapter address is.
    What you have is correct, just add the deny from x.[x.[x.[x]]] values.
    PHP Code:
    header('HTTP/1.1 420 Enhance Your Calm');
