General InformationThe goals of this project are to provide a mechanism which provides an easy and convenient way for users and groups in the ISU community to publish documents on the World Wide Web.
RegistrationPLEASE NOTE: By registering a user or locker, you are implicitly granting permission to use your REAL NAME and electronic mail address in the directory of homepages. If you do not wish to have this information available, do not register for this service.
To register, go to ASW and complete the registration procedure.
Forming URL's on www.public.iastate.eduAfter your account or locker has been registered with www.public.iastate.edu, there is a file-system to URL mapping that works as follows:
Example 1/home/username/WWW/homepage.html -> http://www.public.iastate.edu/~username /home/lockername/WWW/homepage.html -> http://www.public.iastate.edu/~lockername
Example 2/home/username/WWW/homepage.html -> http://www.public.iastate.edu/~username/homepage.html /home/lockername/WWW/homepage.html -> http://www.public.iastate.edu/~lockername/homepage.html
Example 3/home/username/WWW/dir1/file1.html -> http://www.public.iastate.edu/~username/dir1/file1.html /home/lockername/WWW/dir1/file1.html -> http://www.public.iastate.edu/~lockername/dir1/file1.html Note that the URL "http://www.public.iastate.edu/~username" will automatically pick up the file "homepage.html". The file "homepage.html" will be the "homepage" for the User- and Locker-Served directories.
Files may be uploaded using any client that supports the Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). Examples of such clients include:
Protocol: sftp (NOT ftps)
The Webfile service provides a web-based interface for accessing AFS file space.
