Exeternal web site requesting id and password
Posted on 2012-08-17
I have several web sites that we host on a Windows Server 2003 system with IIS v6.
I recently changed our domain and when doing so messuped the security on our web site. I then created a local id and password to this server for our web site and entered this into the web site properties | directory security | Authentical and Access control. This worked.
Fast foward 30 days and it appears the password expired. I changed the password within the local server and then on the web site properities and everything works.
The settings for the local user are password never expires and user cannot change password.
First, did I miss something in how this should work? Is there a better way of setting this security. I figure a local id and password may be more secure for this web server versus using active directory.
I don't want to repeat this problem, any suggestions please.
