How to: Access Windows SharePoint Services Site Administration
When you install and configure SharePoint Products and Technologies, you automatically provision a default Web site. This top-level Web site is where you control all the options and features of SharePoint Products and Technologies sites. Not only can administrators of a top-level Web site control site access and group membership, they can also perform actions such as enabling or disabling Web document discussions or alerts, viewing usage and quota data, and changing anonymous access settings. The group membership and permissions required for administrative control will vary depending on the version of SharePoint Products and Technologies that you use with Visual Studio Team System Team Foundation Server.
Site administration is separate from the Windows SharePoint Services Central Administration, which you access through the SharePoint Central Administration tool.
To perform these procedures, you must satisfy at least one of the following conditions:
You must be a member of the Windows SharePoint Services Site Administrators group on the server that hosts Windows SharePoint Services 2.0.
You must be a member of both the Site Collection Administrators and Farm Administrators groups on the server that hosts Windows SharePoint Services 3.0.
You must be a member of the Administrators group on the server.
For more information about permissions, see Team Foundation Server Permissions.
