Creating user accounts 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.
To give users access to password-protected directories on
your site, you add HT Access (HT is derived from hypertext) user accounts
for them. When you create this user account, you add it to a group, and
the user is given the group's access privileges.
Before you create a HT Access user account, you need to havecreated a group.
To add an HTAccess
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageUsers (Web Server section). The Protect
Manage Users form opens. A list of user names displays in the lower
section of the form.
In the Add a User
area, in the Username field, enter a user name for the new user.
In the Password
field, enter a password for the user.
In the Confirm
Password field, retype the password.
In the Belongs
field, select the group or groups to which you want to add the user. You can add the user to multiple groups by pressing
and holding down the Ctrl
key while clicking the group names.
The new user name displays in the lower section of the form.
Notify the user the
account has been created and provide the user name and password you assigned
so they can access protected directories.
