Change SharePoint 2010 Authentication from Windows to Forms
While creating a web application, by mistake selected “Windows” authentication, and felt we need “Forms” authentication (Claims Based Authentication) because of a business requirement.
Went to Central Administration >> Application Management >> Manage Web Applications >> Selected the desired web application >> Authentication Providers.
Oops, “Forms” option is disabled! Couldn’t find any way to enable “Forms” Authentication from user interface. Solution? PowerShell!
Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue $WebApp=get-spwebapplication "https://sharepoint.crescent.com" $WebApp.useclaimsauthentication="True" $WebApp.Update()

I just want to know, how to configure FBA in SharePoint Server 2010 using IIS 7 and ASP .NET Membership Database (SQL) like in MOSS 2007. And also can we extend FBA authentication to Windows authentication to enable CRAWL?
