Changing user access privileges

You can change users' access to password-protected directories on your site by removing them from the group or groups with access privileges. Users must belong to at least one group, however. To revoke all access privileges, you need to remove the user's htaccess account.

To change users' access privileges:

  1. In the shortcuts area of the Home page, click Users (Web Server section). The Protect Directories: (HTAccess) Manage Users form opens. A list of user names displays in the lower section of the form.

  2. In the Add a User area, in the Username field, enter the user name of the user whose privileges you want to change.

  1. In the Password and Confirm Password fields, type the password for the user. If this password differs from the one originally assigned, notify the user that the password has been changed.

  2. In the Belongs to group(s) field, click the arrow and from the list, select only the group or groups to which you want the user to belong. To remove a user from a specific group make sure the group is not selected.

Users must belong to at least one group.

  1. Note: You can select multiple groups by pressing and holding down the Ctrl key while clicking the group names.

  1. Click Add/Edit.
