I have added a folder in my webapplication for the admin side of the webside and want to implement forms based authentication. so that admin users can be checked for security. i added a web.config file. but when i add the code below
<authorization>

<deny users="?" />

</authorization>

<authentication mode="Forms">

<forms name=".ASPXAUTH" protection="All" timeout="60" loginUrl="login_form.aspx" />

</authentication>
