Setup and Publish Your Web Page

Using Secure File Transfer to upload your web page

  • You must first obtain a Linux account.
  • You will first need to use a secure shell program like Putty to log into your Linux account with the login name and password email to you.
  • You will log into your account by running your secure shell program. You will then need to create a public_ html directory, this is where your web page will be uploaded.
  • The public_ html directory is where your web pages must be stored to be accessible via the address: where username is the name that you use to log into the system.
  • You can then drag your files over to the public_html folder.
