Explain Nginx allow ip to a newbie
November 18, 2019 07:08PM
Hi there,

I am newbie to the web world in general and I just deployed my first app in production which is hosted in a cloud service.

So, I have created an admin page and I don't want anyone to be able to reach it.

As far as I know, there are 2 options:
a) place it under a strange url such as mysite.com/dascgcfcsdasfdsgkg/ rather than mysite.com/admin/
or
b) within my nginx configuration I can allow access only to my ip.

(b) option seems to be better but I have noticed that my laptop ip changes a bit often, even if I am connecting to internet from my router at my home. What's the solution to this problem?
