Validate IP Address in PHP

Today I am going to tell how to validate IPv4 / IP address using PHP. Simple function which will used to check client IP address is valid or not.

Steps to validate IPv4 Address in PHP

  • Split IP address into segments  by dot(.)  using explode function
  • Make sure that there are 4 segments (eg : 192.168.1.45)
  • Make sure that IP cannot start with 0
  • IP segments must be digits & cannot be longer than 3 digits or greater than 255
function validate_ip($ip)
{
//split ip address in to array by dot
$ip_segments = explode('.', $ip);
// Always 4 segments needed
if (count($ip_segments) !== 4)
{
return FALSE;
}
// IP can not start with 0
if ($ip_segments[0][0] == '0')
{
return FALSE;
}
// Check each segment
foreach ($ip_segments as $segment)
{
// IP segments must be digits and can not be
// longer than 3 digits or greater then 255
if ($segment == '' OR preg_match("/[^0-9]/", $segment) OR $segment > 255 OR strlen($segment) > 3)
{
return FALSE;
}
}
return TRUE;
}

//usuage
$ip = validate_ip("192.168.1.43");
if($ip)
{
echo "Valid IP";
} else {
echo "Invalid IP";
}

This function will return boolean true or false
