Customizing IWP_auth

I have been able to customize the IWP_home.html file and place it into the folder Web Publishing/IWP/ on a XServe running Mac OS X. However, I am unable to get the server to point to a customized version of IWP_auth.html (which is in the same folder as the IWP_home.html file). Instead, the default version is used. Hence, I was wondering if there is any means of getting the IWP server to use the customized version of IWP_auth instead of the default version.

The iwp_auth.html file is in the FM Web Publishing.app package. Right-click on the file and choose 'show package contents' dig in there a ways and look for a iwpres folder. The file is in there... just keep a copy of the original and put any modified version in it's place.

I tried writing to the iwpres folder, but it doesn't seem to allow me to modify any of the files (I am thinking it is a file permission problem, but so far I can't be able to change the permission settings). Did anyone manage to write to that folder, and if so how?

I have been able to drag copy a modified iwp_auth.html file into the package and it worked on the client version of OSX. On XServe running OSX Server the OS may present a permissions problem that is different.

I had a similar problem (couldn't get FMSA8 to recognize my custom iwp_home file). I ended up just modifying the one inside the package. This was on a regular version of OSX 10.4

After hacking around the IWP, I finally figured it out. In Mac OS X Server, the permissions for the FM Server package must be changed to one's profile (for me it was easy given that I am the administrator) and allow for "read & write" so that any of the internal items can be modified. As an extra step (which I found out is optional), the same is applied to the folder containing the files to be modified after the contents have been revealed.
