Form based authentication problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All:

    I am new at WSS 3.0. I need to implement form based authentication under WSS 3.0. As per the video article found at 


    I follow every instructions. But while i am going to login at my sharepoint site (which i have configured for form based authentication) and input the valid user name and password  system does not redirect me to the next page (my SharePoint site home page). It seems that system accepts my user name and password. But i If input any wrong user name or password it gives me warning like your user name or password does not match.

    Please help to solve this issue.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Can you find any relevant error message in windows event log or the SharePoint trace log in folder \Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS ?

    2) Create an ASP.Net Web Site to manage Roles and Users.
    3) Open ASP.Net Web Site’s Web Administration Tool.
    4) Create a new Web Application from SharePoint Central Administration site.
    5) Extend Web Application
    6) Change Authentication Provider for Forms based site.
    7) Change configuration files settings.
    8) Change policy for Web Application
    9) Add users/roles as site administrator (Primary and Secondary).
