Protecting directories through the FrontPage interface
This topic is for systems with Microsoft®
FrontPage® Extensions enabled. If you do not have FrontPage extensions
enabled, use the Site Administrator
control panel to protect directories.
You can protect directories on your site to limit access
to files located in those directories. If you have FrontPage enabled for
your site, you do this through the FrontPage interface. You can link to
this interface from the Site Administrator control panel.
You can protect directories only; you cannot protect individual files.
If you want to protect a single file, either place that file in an existing
protected directory, or create a directory specifically for that file,
then protect the directory.
To access the Microsoft FrontPage interface:
In the shortcuts
area of the Home pageProtect Directories (File Manager section).
In the Protect Directories
form, click Microsoft FrontPage Extension
Permission Management Interface.
Your Microsoft FrontPage login information is the original Site Administrator
user name and password assigned to you when your site was created.
If you have changed your Site Administrator user name or password since
then, the change is not reflected in FrontPage login. You can change the
FrontPage login using the FrontPage Extension Permission Management Interface.
For more information, see the FrontPage user documentation.
