You may find it necessary to block a specific IP address from accessing your Drupal 7 website. Perhaps they are a spammer or have been attempting to break into the site to vandalize it. This can be done very quickly through your Drupal 7 admin dashboard.
- Log into your Drupal 7 Dashboard
- Go to Configuration
- Click IP address blocking, located under the People category.
- Type in the IP address to block and click Add.
- Now, when a visitor with that IP address visits your website, they will see the message “Sorry, 126.96.36.199 has been banned.”
If you need to at a later time, you can also unblock IP addresses.
