Creating Personal Web Pages



If you would like to create a personal webpage then simply follow these steps:
  1. You must be logged into the network on campus as yourself. (or logged in via http://storage.olivet.edu)
  2. Create a folder on your H: drive and name it: webpage (lowercase).
  3. Place all of your web pages, pictures, and other files into this folder or its subfolders.
  4. The first webpage that you want people to see in each folder must be named: index.html or index.htm (lowercase). After that you can name each web page file anything you would like. Avoid spaces in the names.
  5. Your web address is http://web.olivet.edu/~username where "username" is your login ID (bjones, lsmith, etc).
  6. The list of students' webpages is updated automatically every few hours to reflect the addition of new pages.
  7. If you go to http://web.olivet.edu/~username and you are getting a 404 error, make sure that the webpage folder is in lowercase, and that you have an index.html or index.htm in that folder.

If you have any questions about this procedure you can contact IT at extension 5302.
