how to create 'epiAdmin' user and 'WebAdmins' roles without using the ASP.Net Web Site Administration Tool



I have setup episerver CMS 6 public templates in my server, followed the SDK, but could not create the 'epiAdmin' user along with 'WebAdmin' role by using ASP.Net Web Site Administration Tool because my server does not have Visual Studio 2008 installed. Can anyone please suggest how to create the users, roles and change the memebership provider & role provider without using the Web Site Administration Tool.

please help !!!!

If you have setup a demo templates site you can change the membership and role provider in web.config. If you use the windows providors you can log in to edit/admin mode with a local admin account.

Yep, what Per said.

If you're still having trouble Abisanka, then I have a blog post about setting up user permissions here: This will explain how you switch providers and how to create groups and users using the SQL Server role and membership provider.

If you need more information on the topic I have a more in-depth post on user permissions here:
