Hello, I am a customer of Dreamhost, and I have created a .htaccess that is filled with "deny from" statements to prevent China and many other countries from accessing my website. Here is an example: Code: # China deny from 22.214.171.124/14 deny from 126.96.36.199/13 deny from 188.8.131.52/16 deny from 184.108.40.206/15 At the end of my .htaccess file those that are redirected with a 403 get a custom 403: Code: ErrorDocument 403 /errordocs/403.html I realized later that the loop existed as evidenced by my error.log file: How do I grant access to 403.html to IP Addresses I have forced to redirect? How do I break this loop? Currently I redirect them to a friendly search engine, but would prefer to show them a message in case one of the visitors is a non-spammer who would like to access the site in an alternate way. Thanks in advance.
