Hi Experts,

Is there anyway to add/change or convert the authentication of sharepoint sites from Windows authentication to Forms-based authentication?

I have a very little knowledge about Sharepoint (if none) and I got a task to do so. I'm searching all over the places but couldn't find anything.

Help me please with any link/documents,

Thank you very much,

Tuan Nguyen

    I don't think you can change the current authentication provider ( Default is windows  or NTLM)

    but you can extend the site to a new zone , that works with FBA

    Thank you George.

    Now I'll look for how to extend the site to a new zone :)
