IT is rolling out a new, more convenient way to publish personal homepages to the Internet.
The new method, currently available through PC’s only, places a folder in a user’s M: drive. The folder, called my_web_files automatically assigns the correct permissions for use on the web.
To use this service, simply save your web page files to M:\my_web_files, and they become instantly available to the World Wide Web.
Recent changes in the security configuration of the H:\ drive has made it necessary to utilize the new M:\my_web_files folder. We recommend that users of the public_html folder transition to this new method immediately, as the folder will be hidden the next time they log on.
This service is only applicable to campus PC’s that already mount the M: drive. Chemistry and VPA users should continue saving and accessing their web files as usual.
A Mac OS X compatible variation of the M:\ drive will be deployed shortly which will make this service available to Mac users as well.
