SUMMARY
This article explains how to set up a restricted-access Web in Microsoft FrontPage 2002.

A restricted-access Web is a Web site that only specific users are allowed to view. FrontPage does not support the restricting of pages, sections, or folders within a Web.

To set up a restricted-access Web in FrontPage, you must set the permissions in the Web to Only registered users have browse access. This is normally done with a subweb that has unique permissions. However, you can also set a root Web to Only registered users have browse access.

A subweb is a Web nested inside another Web. By default, all subwebs inherit the same permission settings as their parent Webs. However, you can 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.

The following sets of steps show you how to create a subweb and set unique permissions.

Create a New Subweb
You can create a subweb in FrontPage by using any of the following methods:

back to the top
Method 1: Create a Subweb from a Wizard or a Template
On the File menu, point to New, and then click Page or Web.
In the New Page or Web task pane, click Web Site Templates. In the Web Site Templates dialog box, select a Web layout.
In the Specify the location of the new web drop-down list, type a new Web location or select your location from the list of available choices.

For example, http://server name is a Root Web and http://server name/subweb name is a subweb.

NOTE: To create a disk-based subweb, type a path location similar to the following:
C:my websubweb name

Notice that you cannot set permissions on the Web until it is published to a server that is running the FrontPage Server Extensions.
Click OK.
