Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP9 Administrator's Guide

The Default ACL File

After installation, the server_root/httpacl/generated.https-serverid.acl file provided default settings for the server. The server uses the working file genwork.https-serverid.acl until you create settings in the user interface. When editing an ACL file, you could make changes in the genwork file, then save and apply the changes using Sun Java System Web Server.

Sample genwork File.

version 3.0;
acl "default";
authenticate (user, group) {
  prompt = "Sun Java System Web Server";
allow (read, execute, info) user = "anyone";
allow (list, write, delete) user = "all";

acl "es-internal";
allow (read, execute, info) user = "anyone";
deny (list, write, delete) user = "anyone";
