Chapter 9. Creating a Web Site to Suppor... > Maintaining the Security of Web Site...

Maintaining the Security of Web Site Files

Most small business or personal Web sites have only one developer working on them at any given time. In some cases, however, especially with larger corporate sites, multiple developers need to work on a single site at the same time. In such situations, you can use FrontPage’s source control feature to protect the integrity of your Web site’s files. The source control feature ensures that only one person at a time can edit a particular file. This avoids the frustration and anguish of having your changes overwritten by someone else.

FrontPage’s source control works like a library that has only one copy of everything. You can check a file out, work with it, and then check it back in. While you have the file, no one else can check it out. Other people can open the file as read-only and look at it, but any changes they make to the file will be lost unless they save the file with a different name.
