Backend User Management


This chapter (and the following) cover modules that will only be available for backend users with "admin" access privileges.

We saw earlier that TYPO3 CMS enforces a strict separation of so-called "frontend" and "backend". The same is true for users: there are "frontend users", who are web site visitors, and "backend users", who are editors and administrators.

Working with frontend users is discussed in the Editors Guide. We will now look at backend users and how to set up groups and permissions.
