Setting Permissions

Reader rating: 4 out of 10


If you want to limit access to a FrontPage web, you can set permissions.

Setting Permissions

Note: Not all web servers support the setting of permissions.  If you are on a Windows NT Server, permissions are not supported.  UNIX will typically support permissions.  It is best to check with your system administrator before even trying to set permissions.

1.  Open your FrontPage web through your web server.

    -To do this, type in the Folder name: text box when you are opening a web.  If you run a disk based web, remember not to open the web through your hard drive.  Permissions are set through the web server; not through the web itself.

2.  Click the Tools menu, point to Security, and click Permissions... from the menu that appears.

3.  Click the selection field that says: "Unique permissions for this web".  

4.  Click the Users tab.

5.  Click Add... to add a user and click a user and click the Remove... button to remove the user.

Note:  Do not remove the user that is automatically added into your Users List.  This is your username used to log in to your server.  If it is deleted, you will not able to log in to your server to publish your site through FrontPage.

6.  Once finished, click the Apply button.

7.  Click OK.

Tip: When setting permissions, you need to set the specific privileges for each user.  Here's the permissions that can be set:

--Browse: Allowed to view the site.

--Browse, Author: Allowed to log in through FrontPage and author files.  You are also allowing the user to view the site.

--Browse, Author, Administer: Allowed to view the site, author the site through FrontPage, and administer users and other administration options.
