Changing user passwords for protected directories
Note: This topic is for systems without
Microsoft® FrontPage® Extensions. If you have FrontPage Extensions enabled,
you need to use the FrontPage interface
to manage protected directories.
You can change the passwords users enter when they access
protected directories on your site. These are HTAccess passwords only;
they differ from the passwords users enter to access services and the
User Administrator control panel.
To change a user’s HTAccess password:
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageUsers (Web Server section). The Protect
Directories: (HTAccess) Manage Users form opens. A list of user names
appears in the lower section of the form.
In the Add a User
area, in the UserName
field, enter the user name of the user whose information you want to change.
In the Password
field, type a new password for the user.
In the Confirm
Password field, enter the new password again.
In the Belongs
field, select the group or groups to which the user belongs.
Notify the user that
the password has been changed.
