[Solved] Web User Passwords (Anonymous Identity)

Hi everyone,

When we create a website with a domain example.com, a user named examplecom_web is created for IIS anonymous authentication.

What are those users' passwords? Are they random?

I'm asking because I want to use them with Basic Authentication. Sometimes we need an extra layer of security so we remove anonymous authentication for a directory (via web.config) and IIS starts explicitly prompting for credentials for that directory. It would be good to use that _web suffixed users' credentials where permissions are already configured for the user.

PS: I'm not interested in SolidCP's Secured Folders feature as I don't have Helicon Ape installed on my servers.

Hello,

These passwords a randomly generated on adding a website and not stored once created and set.

Regards,

Trevor

@trobinson I see. Then I'm going to create explicit FTP users for that. Thanks for the answer.
