This article describes how to set up a restricted-access Web in Microsoft FrontPage.
To set up a restricted-access Web in FrontPage, you must create a subweb. A subweb is a Web nested inside another Web. By default, all subwebs inherit the same permission settings as their parent Webs. However, you are able to establish unique permissions for subwebs. Each subweb can have its own set of permissions that specify who can browse, author, or administer it, and you can set up individual subwebs with different levels of permissions and different groups of users.
To set up a restricted-access Web, you must create a subweb, and then configure unique permissions for that subweb to restrict access to specific users. To do this, follow these steps:
Start FrontPage Explorer, and then create a subweb.You can create a subweb by converting a folder to a subweb, by importing a Web into a folder and then converting the folder into a subweb, or by using the FrontPage Server Administrator (Fpsrvadm.exe) command line.
