Web Protect Overview

You can protect directories within your site from browsers by using a password to protect them. This allows you to restrict material to only authorized users.

Password Protect a Directory

To add password protection to a directory:

  1. Click on the Web Protect link in the Site Management section of the main menu of the control panel.
  2. Navigate to the directory that you want to protect. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.
  3. Check on the checkbox next to the LOCK icon.
  4. Enter the name that you want to appear in the Protected Resource Name field of the password dialog. This is optional and purely for the user's benefit.
  5. Click on the Save button.

Adding a New User

Generally, you now need to add at least one authorized user to enable access to the directory. To add or modify an authorized user:

  1. Click on the Web Protect link in the Site Management area.
  2. Navigate to the required directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.
  3. Enter the user's name in the UserName field, and their password in the Password field.
  4. Click on the Add New User button.

Changing a User's Password

To change an authorized user's password:

  1. Click on the Web Protect link in the Site Management area.
  2. Navigate to the required directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.
  3. Enter the user's name in the UserName field, and their new password in the Password field.
  4. Click on the Change Password button.

Removing a User

Remove authorized users when they should no longer have access to a particular directory. This maintenance task is often forgotten and leaves a hole in your security, so remember to perform this procedure as soon as it is required. To remove an authorized user:

  1. Click on the Web Protect link in the Site Maintenance area.
  2. Navigate to the required directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.
  3. Select the required user in the Active Users list.
  4. Click on the Delete User button.

Removing Password Protection

To remove password protection from a directory:

  1. Click on the Web Protect link in the Site Maintenance area.
  2. Navigate to the protected directory. Select a folder by clicking on the folder name link, or open a folder by clicking on the folder icon.
  3. Uncheck the checkbox next to the LOCK icon.
  4. Click on the Save button.
