    And to take what @Brogan commented on a little further, in the htaccess you can restrict access to the /install directory to specific IP's.

    How would you do what... allow based upon permissions? If so it's using the ALLOW/DENY capability in the .htaccess.

    order deny,allow
    deny from all
    allow from 111.222.333.444
    where 111.222.333.444 is your IP.

    Quoting a portion of what you are responding to would help target what you need help with. If you are referring to the code segment I am talking about you won't find that in the default .htaccess. you have to create the entry as outlined in @Brogans referral and then add it in.
