Manage your FPSE Site Permissions Without Using FrontPage 2003
When former FrontPage users first start using Expression Web, a common question is “How do I edit the permissions to my web site or subweb?”
While FrontPage 2003 enables users to manage permissions to their FPSE web site through an Administration web site linked to from the application, Expression Web doesn’t provide the same level of integration.
When using FrontPage 2003 to edit your FPSE web site or subweb, you can manage its permissions by using the Tools > Server > Permissions menu. That will bring up the Administration web site for your FPSE web site on your web browser.
When using Expression Web to edit your FPSE Website or subweb, you can browse to http://[Server_Name]/[FPSE_Web_site_Name]/[Subweb_Name]/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll in any browser, substituting for [Server_Name], [FPSE_Web_site_Name] and [Subweb_Name], with the appropriate strings.
To edit the permission for the FPSE web site http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven, just browse to http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll; you'll be prompted for the appropriate username and password if needed.
To edit the permissions for the subweb "Hawaii" in the FPSE web site http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven, browse to http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven/Hawaii/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll.
On this Administration web site, you can specify the following:
- Whether to use the same permission as the parent web site or not
- If you decided to use a different set of permissions from the parent web site, you can fine-tune your web site or subweb permissions by:
- Allowing or disallowing anonymous access
- Managing its users
- Managing its user roles
