Creating Personal Web Pages

All users with Engineering accounts automatically receive web space for publishing pages and sharing content with the world. This web space can be accessed from any browser using the url http://www.engr.uconn.edu/~username where username is the actual name of the Engineering account.

This web space is for static content only (at this time). If you need to create dynamic database-driven content, please see our Web Sites section.

 

Finding Your Home Page

Assume your account name is username001, if you make a file called math.htm and place it in the public_html directory of your home drive, the web address of that document will be http://www.engr.uconn.edu/~username001/math.htm. If you make a directory in your public_html folder called mathfiles, and place math.htm in that directory, the web address will be http://www.engr.uconn.edu/~username001/mathfiles/math.htm.

The only exception to this rule is a file with the name index.html. Any file given this name will appear as the directory name. For instance, if you copy index.html to the mathfiles directory, its web address will be http://www.engr.uconn.edu/~username001/mathfiles/.
