Setting General Applications Properties
From the Applications Settings page, you can perform the following tasks:
- Set permissions
- Specify the default page
- Enable or disable the use of Microsoft® FrontPage® extensions (it is disabled by default)
- Create an FTP Web site for the Web sites your server manages
To set or modify application settings
- From the primary navigation bar, choose Sites.
- Select the Web site you want to modify.
- In the Tasks list, choose Modify.
- Select the Application Settings tab.
- Use the Default execute permissions list to select one of the following levels of script execution:
- NoneDo not run scripts, including Active Server Pages (ASP) applications, or executables on the server.
- Scripts OnlyRun only scripts, such as ASP applications, on the server.
- Scripts and ExecutablesRun both scripts, such as ASP applications, and executables on the server.
- Use the Default page list to select the appropriate default Web page.
- To add a page to the list of default pages, type the file name of the page to add in the File Name box, and then choose Add.
- To remove a page from the list of default pages, select the file name of the page to remove, and then choose Remove.
- Microsoft FrontPage extensions allow administrators to view and manage Web sites in the graphical user interface (gui) offered by FrontPage. If you want to view and manage Web sites on your server using FrontPage, select Enable Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions. If you would rather create a Web site to which the administrator account can connect using FTP to modify files, select Create an FTP site to author content.
- Select the Allow anonymous access check box to let remote users connect to your server without a user name or password. Users who log on anonymously have only the permissions assigned to the guest account. Anonymous access is typically used for Internet Web sites.
