Protect Directories Overview
option, you can limit the amount
of access users have to your site. You can specify a username
and password for the directory you are protecting. Each
protected directory can have multiple users (each with
different passwords if you prefer) who have access to it.
Additionally, the Protect Directories option can be used to
remove a userís access from a protected directory.
In order to use the
Microsoft FrontPage Extensions
option must be disabled.
If it is enabled, then you must use your version of
Microsoft FrontPage to protect the directories. If the
Microsoft FrontPage Extensions option is enabled, you
will not have access to the Protect Directories option and
will see the following message if you try to access it.
If you want to grant only select users access to a particular
directory on your site, you can set up protection on that
directory by using one user name and one password. Then, if
someone requests access to files in that directory, you can
give that user the corresponding user name and password.
