The example I am thinking of is similar to unix that has a login rule allowed times.
what I am trying to do is set up a small window if I am traveling to be able to modify the .htaccess file.
Deny from All
Allow from XX.XX.X3.*
Allow from XX.XX.X4.*
but have the entire Deny,Allow work from as an example Al0000-2355
so it allows only specific hardcoded ip ranges but for 5 minutes a day allows all so I can hop in from a non listed IP, log in and replace the .htaccess file with the IP range I am working at.
I guess I can set up closed and open file and have it in cron to
cp path/closed path/.htaccess the ip filtered list,
cp path/open path/.htaccess
Not sure if there is a way to code “Deny from All if system time = 0000-2355”
in effect deny ignored from 2356-2359
