To restrict specific IP addresses in XAMPP, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the XAMPP control panel and click on the "Config" button for Apache.
  2. In the Apache configuration file (httpd.conf), find the section where access control is defined using the "Order", "Allow", and "Deny" directives.
  3. Add the following lines to restrict access to a specific IP address: Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from ***.***.***.*** Replace "***.***.***.***" with the specific IP address you want to restrict.
  4. Save the changes and restart the Apache server in XAMPP.
  5. Test the configuration by trying to access your local website from the restricted IP address. You should see a 403 Forbidden error message.

By following these steps, you can restrict specific IP addresses from accessing your XAMPP server.
