Hey all,

Here is the scenario- I have a website that is in place for students to securely login to.
I am using CFSecurity_Framework V1.4.
All of the main content for this website was made by someone else in basic html and java content. What would be the proper way for me to secure these pages? Do I simply rename them all to .cfm pages or I was told that I could put them in a separate directory away from the root site. How would I go about setting this up to redirect students who have logged in the main website? What do you think is the best method?

TIA

Rob

ColdFusion isn't going to protect html files or directories.  If you need to protect access to the files in a particular directory you'd have to setup authentication in your web server (IIS/Apache, etc).

By the way, on a side note, please do not post the same message in multiple threads/forums.  If no one has answered your question yet, it generally means that no one that has read it thus far knows the answer.  Refer to the Forum Guidelines for policies/rules/regulations.

Thanks for the reply. Sorry about posting in 2 spots I wasn't sure where it would fit, since I also was using CFSecurity_Framework I thought it might fit under this forum better.
