I can do this with the droplet’s IP using an Apache a virtual host config like such :
Redirect 403 /
ErrorDocument 403 “Sorry, direct IP access not allowed.”
However, when I use the same strategy for the floating IP, I can still access the web server using the floating IP. I would like to disable direct access by IP over HTTP (floating and direct droplet) to my server. Not sure how to do this.
Any suggestions welcomed.
