Publish Your Page

When you are satisfied with the appearance of your page, you are ready to publish it by copying the new files (including any image files) to your Web directory. To transfer the files from a Windows computer, use the SSH Secure Shell file transfer window; from a Macintosh computer use Fetch. Both programs are available from the University's software download page. Be sure to name your main page index.html.

Address for your Web directory

When you use either the SSH Secure Shell file transfer window or the Fetch program, the address you type in the remote directory box is

Browse your page

Once you have published your page on Copland, you will want to look at it in a browser to see how it will appear to the world.

  1. Open Mozilla Firefox or another browser.
  2. In the Location: box, type the URL of your new home page.'s_directory

To make changes to your Web page, you can edit the copy on your local computer and then repeat the publishing steps. If you change personal computers, you can either save a copy of your Web page to removable media or open KompoZer and choose Open Web Location from the KompoZer File menu to edit the page.

Set the protections for your Web page

Once your pages are in place, you must make them readable to the world. The SSH Secure Shell file transfer window allows you to change file protections right in the remote window. You can also change them by logging directly into your Web directory through your UDelNet account.

  1. Log in to your UDelNet account and change to your group directory by typing the following command at the % prompt:

    cd docs
    Note: You must have created a link to your directory to do this.

  2. Make all your files readable to the world by typing the following command at the % prompt.

    chmod 664 *

  3. Make your directories (folders) readable to the world by typing the following command at the % prompt.

    chmod 775  directoryname

  4. To make sure other members of your group can edit your files, note the project number for your organization, then at the UNIX % prompt, type:

    chgrp project_number  *
