This article describes how to create a registration form on a web page for a protected web. A protected web requires user registration and authorization, which allows you to restrict or monitor access to your web pages.
To allow a registered user access to your web, you can set up a registration form on a page in the <Root Web> and create a protected web. The <Root Web> is created automatically when you install the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions on your server. The registration page in the <Root Web> acts as a gatekeeper to the protected web, because it forces users to register before they access your web. The protected web allows only registered users to access it.
You can set up a registration form in the <Root Web> only; you cannot set up a registration page in a subweb.
Microsoft Windows NT security, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), and Microsoft Personal Web Server do not allow registration through a Web browser. For more information, please see the following article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
