There should be a block that looks like this:
<Location /pagespeed_admin> Order allow,deny Allow from localhost Allow from 127.0.0.1 Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx # add your IP here SetHandler pagespeed_admin </Location>
Save the file and restart Apache. My server was a CentOS one, so:
[root@host ~]# service httpd restart
Doing this should allow you to access the PageSpeed admin by going to the URI at the site’s IP. For example, if the IP for
