This is an example of how you can create dynamic access restrictions within Apache HTTPd itself.
You can view the source at http://www.humbedooh.com/mods/gatekeeper/
Turns the access restriction checks on or off.
Enables (default) or disables merging of access restrictions with higher level directories and locations.
Allows access if <match> matches the criteria set up in <list>. <match> Can be one of the following (or several separated by a comma):
If <tech> is set to file, then mod_gatekeeper will look in the file specified by <list>, matching one single line to <match> if possible.
If <tech> is set to mod_dbd, then mod_gatekeeper will execute the statement specified by <list>.
Same as GKAllow, only it denies based on matches.
Same as GKAllow, but will fail the entire chain if not matched, whereas GKAllow will only fail if none of the GKAllow directives match.
<Location /foo> GKEngine On GKAllow REMOTE_ADDR file /fo/bar/allowed_ips.txt GKDENY USER_AGENT file /foo/bar/bad_agents.txt </Location> <Location /foo/bar> #Prevent restrictions in /foo to take effect here. GKMerge off GKRequire REMOTE_ADDR mod_dbd "SELECT `ip` FROM `list` WHERE `ip` = '%s'" </Location>
