Securing a folder in your application (ColdFusion)

Securing a folder in your application (ColdFusion)

You can use Dreamweaver to password-protect a specific folder in your ColdFusion application, including the application’s root folder. When a visitor to your site requests any page in the specified folder, ColdFusion prompts the visitor for a username and password. ColdFusion stores the user name and password in session variables so the visitor doesn’t need to enter them again during the session.

This feature is only available if you have access to a computer running ColdFusion MX 7 or later. For more information, see Enabling the ColdFusion enhancements.

To secure a folder or site on the server:

  1. With a Coldfusion document open in Dreamweaver, select Commands > ColdFusion Login Wizard.
  2. Complete the ColdFusion Login Wizard.

    For instructions, click the Help button in the wizard.

    The wizard creates the files needed to secure the folder.

  3. Upload the new files to your remote site.

    The files are located in your local site folder.
