    Hi Team,
    i got ispconfig 3 installed on a centos7 box.
    I created a client and added his domaina and installed wordpress in on the default url.
    Now the client`s domain as "" when he goes there he gets the wordpress page.

    He is looking to have a holding page on saying that the site is under constructiona and only access the wordpress site via the external ip untill that is completed then remove the holding page.

    is that possible and if yes how please?

    if your ip is 111.222.333.444, then inside .htaccesss:
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/maintenance.html$
    RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^111.222.333.444
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$
