Accessing/Updating web pages on the Apache web server (charlotte)

User Web Sites

Individual Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students with web sites on the ECN Apache server (charlotte) can update their web sites using either an ECN supported Windows or Unix (Sun/Linux) computer. Web sites on the ECN Apache server are only available to Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students who have requested a site be created.

A personal web site hosted on the ECN Apache Server is accessible via the web at the following URL:

http://engineering.purdue.edu/~username

Updating User Web Sites from UNIX (Sun/Linux)

From a Unix system files can be update by browsing to:

/web/users/username

where username is your career account login.

Updating User Web Sites from Windows

From an ECN supported Windows computer web pages can be updated by mapping a drive to:

\\web.ecn.purdue.edu\username

View the document on Mapping ECN Drive using Windows XP for more information. This procedure may work from other computer systems on campus or computer systems connected to Purdue through the ITaP VPN Service.

Group (Entity) Web Sites

Groups with web sites on the ECN Apache server (charlotte) can update their web pages using an ECN supported Unix (Sun/Linux) computer.

Group web sites hosted on the ECN Apache Server are accessible via the web at a URL like:

http://engineering.purdue.edu/ENTITY

Where ENTITY is the name of the web site.

From a Unix system, files can be updated by being logged in as the entity, on a machine where the login exists (but not charlotte, which is set to "nologin"):

               From a PC:   Start -> Programs -> ECN Software -> SecureCRT 5.0.2 -> Hosts -> MACHINE 

               From Linux/Unix :  ssh MACHINE -l  ENTITY

cd /web/entities/ENTITY

     Create the Index.html file, to start.

You can also use group permissions, to allow access to the web page files for editing. 

 

If you get an error saying you can not create the file, double check you are logged into a machine where the account exists. 

"ls"  reporting that  the files are owned by "nobody" is an indicator that the account is not on that machine.
