comment conditional DirectoryIndex based on IP address, using .htaccess
i am good with git.. but the other devs not so.. and we have bigger issues right now than time will allow to train them. Anyway for now I have gone ahead with your suggestion of 2 subdomains.. and will work with that... though I would still eventually like to know if there is a way to (as if) make DirectoryIndex conditionally-IP-based, somehow. Thanks for your help; I'd be glad to accept your answer of using 2 subdomains as a workaround if you want to post it as such... or if not, then I'll answer myself so as not to leave the Q officially unanswered (w/out accepted answer).

not using any CMS; this is an old very large custom code base. I'll have to play with what you just suggested.. and report back, before taking more of your time.

comment conditional DirectoryIndex based on IP address, using .htaccess
I am pretty noob here as I said.. but also am not sure that would work well here.. since the subdomain needs to be serving up the default index page, live, to end users (non devs)... and also the devs need to be able to go back and forth (with e.g. a quick tweak to an IP in .htaccess RewriteCond) to compare how code behaves with the live copy of the defaultIndex -vs.- the dev copy of the defaultIndex. The subdomain is live, not for dev. I guess I misunderstood what you meant when you asked if I was setting up a dev environ. "Yes, but not with a subdomain... but with DirectoryIndex"

I did see that post.. and the accepted answer (stackoverflow.com/a/1599786/530006) gives an internal server error, so I do not see why it is accepted. Yes I am trying to have Apache serve up a development copy of the default page when my or another dev's IP (...the default page which is only the default page when coming in via a certain sub.domain.
