Creating Web Pages
ANSWERS
  1. What is my home directory?

    Your account can also hold Web pages. If you FTP into your account you will see a public_html folder which can hold webpages that you would like available online.

    Your Web address will be:
    http://home.eckerd.edu/~username

    Of course, replace "username" with your username. We do not review the content of your pages, but remember that you are responsible for obeying Copyright law and the Computing Resource Policy.

  2. How do I publish pages?

    FTP can be used either on- or off-campus on all types of desktop systems. You must have an FTP client application on your system to transfer files via FTP.

    If you need to download and install an FTP client application there are several available. FireFTP is an easy to use extension for Firefox and other free programs are available from Download.com.

    Enter the following information into a New Connection in your FTP application:

    Host: acasun.eckerd.edu
    User ID: your Eckerd e-mail username
    Password: your Eckerd e-mail password

    After connecting to Acasun, you will be located in your home directory. Navigate to the public_html folder and drag your files there to upload them to the web.

    To see your pages online, go to: http://home.eckerd.edu/~username in your browser.
