How to restrict acces to specific friendly URL by IP in Wordpress site?

May 19, 2017 03:24AM
Hi!
I've got a server with nginx and a wordpress website running on it.

On the web-site, I have a wordpress page, i.e. domain.com/secret-page/, that I want to restrict access to everybody but 1 specific IP address of my other server.

As this page is not a real physical directory, but just a friendly URL - I got stuck. I don't have previous experience configuring nginx, but I tried hard to google the possible solution.

What I tried so far in my website config:
[code]
location ~* ^/secret-page/ {
allow 1.1.1.1;
deny all;
}
[/code]

But this didn't work. It returns 404 error when I try to open this page from allowed IP. Looks like it tried to find the real file or directory /secret-page/ rather than return a friendly URL page if I got it right.

Can you help me please?
