When former FrontPage users first start using Expression Web, a common question is “How do I edit the permissions to my Website or subweb?”.
While FrontPage 2003 provides users the ability to manage permissions to their FPSE Website through an Administration Website linked to from the application, Expression Web doesn’t provide the same level of integration.
When using FrontPage 2003 to edit your FPSE Website or subweb, users can manage its permissions by using the Tools -> Server -> Permissions menu. That will bring up the Administration Website for your FPSE Website on your Web browser.
When using Expression Web to edit your FPSE Website or subweb, you can browse to http://[Server_Name]/[FPSE_Web_site_Name]/[Subweb_Name]/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll on any browser after substituting [Server_Name], [FPSE_Web_site_Name] and [Subweb_Name], with the appropriate strings.
To edit the permission for the FPSE Website http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven, just use your browser to browse to http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll and you'll be prompted for the appropriate username and password if needed.
To edit the permission for the subweb "Hawaii" in the FPSE Website http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven, browse to http://xweblab01sql/SurfHaven/Hawaii/_vti_bin/_vti_adm/fpadmdll.dll
On this Administration Website, you can specify the following:
