Changing user access privileges
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 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:
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageUsers (Web Server section). The Protect
Directories: (HTAccess) 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 the user name of the user whose
privileges you want to change.
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.
In the Belongs
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.
Note: You can select multiple groups by pressing and holding
down the Ctrl
key while clicking the group names.
