Creating groups 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.
The Web server manages access to password-protected directories
on your site based on groups. Before you can protect a directory, you
need to create at least one group, then add at least one user to that
To create a group:
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageGroups (Web Server section).
The Protect Directories: (HTAccess) Manage Groups
form opens. A list of existing groups currently in the group file displays
in the lower section of the form.
In the Add a Group
area, in the Enter Group name field, enter a name for the group
you are creating.
You are now ready to add users to this group.
