FrontPage extensions module updated
Our developers have recently updated the FrontPage extensions module on all of our production servers. With this latest update, you will be able to use some new FrontPage functionalities, which were unavailable until this moment – you can now create FrontPage users, who will be able to access your site or sites (handy if you have a team of designers, working on different projects). When you enable FrontPage extensions (FPE) for the first time, you will be able to login only with the main username and password for the account. You can add more users both from FrontPage itself (when logged on with the main account username) or from the FrontPage Server Extension (FPSE) Administrator interface. Adding new users from FrontPage : 1. In FrontPage 2003, click the File menu and select Open Site. 2. In the Site name box, type the URL of your website. For example, type: http://example.com/ 3. On the Tools menu, point to Server, and then click Permissions. 4. When the password prompt appears, enter your username and password, and then click OK. 5. On the Site Settings page, click Add a user. 6. In the User section, type the user’s name and password, and confirm the password. 7. In the User Role section, select one or more roles for the user. Adding new users from the FPSE Administrator interface: In order to access the FPSE Admin, you simply need to use the following address (be sure to replace my-website-name.com, with the domain you are wishing to grant access to). http://www.my-website-name.com/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmcgi.exe Use the primary FTP account username and password to access the administration area. Select Manage Users -> Add a User, fill in the appropriate information and create it. Always remember that if you add a new user from FrontPage, this user must have a corresponding FTP account with matching usernames and passwords. If the FrontPage username and the FTP username don’t match, this user will not be able to use FrontPage.
