    I have just installed Xenforo on my server but i want to be able to work on the forum and get it set up without it being viewable at my domain address in the meantime.

    I have it installed on my server and when you type in my domain address it takes you to the Xenforo basic forum. I would rather it went to a landing or blank page.

    As i am sure you can tell i am quite new to working with forum software and servers.

    Thanks

    So would it be correct to use .htaccess to add a password or static ip for index.php to block access to my forum?

    If you don't want anyone to access it, yes.
