Accessing/Updating web pages on the Apache web server (wilbur)
User Web Sites
Individual Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students with web sites on the ECN Apache server (wilbur) can update their web sites using either an ECN supported Windows or Unix (Solaris/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:
Updating User Web Sites from UNIX (Solaris/Linux)

Group (Entity) Web Sites
Groups with web sites on the ECN Apache server (wilbur) can update their web pages using an ECN supported Unix (Solaris/Linux) computer.
Group web sites hosted on the ECN Apache Server are accessible via the web at a URL like:
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
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.
