How can I access my web space to make changes?
The new space given for your web site can be accessed in many ways. The
actual file system is available on all UNIX and Linux machines in the path
Additionally, you can do a 'Map Network Drive' to this path

- Undergraduate Students will find their directory under 'me'.

Permission Denied errors when viewing a web page
The web server is a UNIX based system. When creating or editing files, especially when using a PC or Mac, the access permission can be
set incorrectly. To correct these, you will need to open a command prompt on tools and use the 'chmod' command.
To be web accessible, a file must be world readable or be set to the UNIX group
www and group readable. For a directory to be accessible, it must either be
world readable and executable or have its UNIX group set to www and have the
group read and execute permissions set.
