Removing protection from a directory
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.
When you remove password-protection from a directory on your
site, all access limitations are removed from the directory. This makes
it possible for users to access files in the directory without entering
user names and passwords.
To remove protection from a directory:
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageProtect Directories (File Manager section).
The Protect Directories (HTAccess Configuration) window opens,
showing a list of the directories residing on your server. The directories
are identified as either unprotected or protected.
From the directory
list, locate the directory from which you want to remove protection, and
in the Actions column, click .
The HTAccess file is removed from the directory.
