Cannot convert folder to subweb

Posted on 2004-04-25

I have a Win2003 Server running IIS with 11 different websites using host headers.  When I attempt to configure Users and Roles (Frontpage 2002 Tools>Server>Administration or Permissions), the default roles do not appear.  I created a new role of "Admin" and selected all of the rights and granted this new role to a user.  When they try to convert a file into a subweb they cannot unless I add them to the local Administrators group of the web server.  I do not want to put the webmasters in the local admins group so what do I need to do to correct this?

There is one called AdvAuthor - check the permissions there.  If I remember correctly - that should do it.

Hi,

It happened to me last week.

Change the permissions as Corey said.

100% is a permission thing.

That is where ny problems begin, none of the default roles appear on any of the virtual servers. They only appear on the default web site.  How do I get them to show up on the rest of the virtual servers?

Right click on one of the domains in IIS & choose properties.  Locate the tab - Front Page extensions 2002.  Now hit the button - Settings.  Sign in.  And click on Administration (upper left hand corner).  Now you should see all your webs.  Are they all version 5. something?   Click on Set list of available rights - maek sure all of these are checked.

Now on the one you are having a problem with - click on Administration there - Configure user account limits.  Sign in using the administrator account. Under manage users - who is listed?

They are all 5.0.2.5012.  All rights are checked as available.
When I go to Administration via IIS Manager, there is no option to  manage users, only configure user account limits (which is set to allow unlimited).  The only way I can get to manage users is through Frontpage (Tools>Server> Admistration).  The correct domain user account is listed with the role of Admin (a role I created since none of the defalt roles appeared, and has all rights checked).

So when you go into the FP administration, do you see something like this:
 mydomain.com  http://mydomain.com  5.0.2.5012  Administration  

And if you click on the Administation link from there, you should see:
Go to Site administration for http://mydomain.com

And if go to Site Administration for "http://mydomain.com" , you should see something for Manage Roles & Manage users.

Yes I see all of that.  But when I go into manage roles the only role present is the one I created (which is "Admin" and has all rightsassigned to it).  When I go into manage users and either edit or add a user, the only role present is the one I added. No Administrator, Advanced Administrator, etc.

And you are signed in as the Administator on the server, right?  And there is no Add role button?  

Web Admin - probably has something like: user.htm at the very end?  Change ti to adduser.htm & see what happens.  

>>
Make sure you have installed Frontpage 2002. Has the advanced author role been removed from the default installation? This role is always created when FP is first installed.

Go into the Frontpage web interface and look under the frontpage site that was added. Click on "Manage Roles" and check to see which roles are in there. There should be the following:

Administrator View, add, and change all server content; manage server settings and accounts.

Advanced author View, add, and change pages, documents, themes, and borders; recalculate hyperlinks.

Author View, add, and change pages and documents.

Contributor View pages and documents, view and contribute to discussions.

Browser View pages and documents.

I am logging in as Administrator, 2002 is installed, the Advance Author was not removed because it never existed, and not roles appear under Manage roles except for the one I added.  They do exist on the Default Web Site, but none of the other virtual servers.

Can you re-install the FP extensions program to see if you can bring those back?  Or did you want me to possibly login to see what's going on?

I removed the extensions and re-nstalled and all the roles appeared.  I think that my problem was that instead of using IIS Manager>Configure FP 2002 extensions, I just extended them via the Admin page and they inherited the permissions of the Default Web.  I will ask the user to try and create her subweb and verify that it works.

OK - that should work after you give her the correct permissions.

FYI...  I've encountered this issue a number of times on my 2003 box.  As you discovered, I've only been able to solve the problem by removing and reinstalling the extensions for a site.

True - if they are not set up properly in the very beginning, you will have some future problems.
