Lock down certain web folders

Postby SmallBizUser » Fri Mar 17, 2017 10:48 pm


I am exploring what all is available via the Web Station. Currently working on a dokuwiki setup with the third-party app, but I'm not posting this question under the third-party apps section because my question is more general.

What I'm needing to know is what is the best way to lock down the subfolders under the folder called "web" (which is apparently the WebStation's root folder)? For instance, if you want only certain users to be able to view that folder's web contents? How is that best accomplished? I am seeing the permissions section that lists "Everyone" and "http" as users, with custom permissions, but I'm looking for some overall guidance on how best to manage this.

Any and all help appreciated!
