For security reasons, web access to directories must be limited and protected against tampering. The process of limiting web access to a directory behind a user name and password involves two steps. For each of these steps, you will need to create a text file using a simple text editor such as Notepad, TextEdit, or TextWrangler. After performing the steps outlined below, you will need to save the file as a text file using the filenames exactly as specified in the instructions. These files then need to be uploaded to the HSU web server with your sftp client as directed.
The Accessible Technology Initiative (ATI) is an initiative from the Chancellor's Office to make HSU's information technology accessible to all students, faculty, staff and the general public regardless of disability. ATI training will be a requirement for website developers, owners and maintainers using the new Official HSU Web Server and for faculty who host course material on the HSU User Web Server. For those using the HSU User Web server for personal sites, basic accessibility training is encouraged, but is not a requirement.
All Humboldt State University students, faculty and staff are automatically provided with an account on the local campus web server to host individual and faculty course websites; the account is valid for the entire time they are associated with HSU.
Always name your home page index.html. - this is the name web browsers look for when it's pointed at your site.
Your personal web site URL - users.humboldt.edu/<alias>
Your departmental web site URL - www.humboldt.edu/<departmentname>
Note: The tilde (~) is no longer used in site names. You should update any documents (printed and/or electronic) that include your old URL as soon as possible.
Before you can publish pages to the HSU User Web, you must first activate your account.
To upload files from your local computer to your site on the User Web server, you can either use Secure File Transfer Protocol (sftp) software or simply drag and drop files to your HSU Network Folder using Interdisciplinary Computer Lab or office systems.
