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.
Protecting Access to 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.NOTES
- 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:
FP2000: Registration Form Not Supported on IIS Web Server
Create a Protected Web
To create a protected web, follow these steps:
- Open FrontPage and create a new subweb off the root named secureweb.
NOTE: This must be on a server that supports self-registration, such as Apache or the FrontPage Personal Web Server.
- On the Tools menu, point to Security, and then click Permissions.
- On the Settings tab, select the Use unique permissions for this web check box, and then click Apply.
- Select the Users tab, select the Only registered users have browse access check box, and then click Apply.
- Click OK and close the subweb.
Create the Registration Form
To create the registration form, follow these steps:
- Open the <Root Web> on the same Web server in FrontPage.
- On the File menu, point to New, and then click New Page.
- Click the General tab, click to select the User Registration page from the list, and then click OK.
- Right-click the registration form, and then select Properties.
- Click Options.
- Type the web name secureweb from the preceding steps.
NOTE: If you leave the Require secure password check box selected, this forces passwords to be longer than six characters.
- Click OK twice and save the page.
: If you open the root web that contains the registration form, the Component Errors Summary in the Report
view lists any problems with the registration functionality.
