Part: XI Appendixes > Using a Windows SharePoint Services Web Site

Using a Windows SharePoint Services Web Site

A Windows SharePoint Services Web site provides a convenient way for the Web site users to share information with one another. Users of the Web site can be given different levels of access that span from simply being able to browse the site without changing any content to being able to redesign the pages themselves right within the Web browser.

Windows SharePoint Services Web sites work in a completely different way than Web sites you are probably familiar with. Instead of storing the content in a disk location (such as c:\inetpub\wwwroot), the content is stored in Microsoft SQL Server. This means that you won't be able to see your Web site's files using Windows Explorer. You will have no access to the files that make up your Web site unless you use FrontPage or Windows SharePoint Services running inside a browser. If you're one of those developers who makes changes to your Web site using an editor other than FrontPage, you need to be aware that such changes are not possible with a Windows SharePoint Services Web site.
