I find myself tired of having to answer the pop up authentication box to view my control panel login or other private content. Most of the time I am at the office so I could just use my IP, however, I do work remote at times as well. What to do?
Well, you can instruct apache to satisfy either. Here is a template, just replace with your content:
# start code
AuthName "login required.."
Allow from 55.55.55
# end code
The magic takes place with “satisfy any” directive. If your at one of the listed ips, password authentication is bypassed.
Enjoy and stay secure.
