Block IP addresses in Apache 2.4

Apache 2.4 has a different syntax for blocking IP addresses of scammers and spammers than old 2.2, and using the old syntax does even cause ”Internal Server Error” on some hosts. So don’t write like ”deny from” and do like below instead.

Even unsuccessful spam/exploit attempts drain server resources, so a good blacklist gives a potential performance boost that also helps SEO.

Since I give zero fucks about the feelings of scammers and spammers, the following is a live example that works on Loopia.
