Chapter 17. Configuring Webs > Changing Passwords

Changing Passwords

As with most network-based programs, you can change your password to prevent unwanted access. In fact, as long as the root web administrator agrees, you should change it frequently. To do so, choose Tools, Security, Change Password. You are presented with the Change Password for Username dialog box, in which you type the current password, the new password, and the new password a second time (to make sure you don't accidentally type something you'll never remember).

Any users with administer or author permissions can change their own passwords. You should set policy on password changes if you're the main administrator for your organization's webs, instructing those with administer or author permissions when they can make such changes—and whether you're even permitting them to do so. This is a significant issue in managing your Web site because you'll want full control over who gets to access it for the sake of adding, editing, and deleting webs and files, and you should clarify password procedures immediately.
