Web Publishing

Upon the creation of your EIU e-mail address, you will also have an EIU web account created for you. Your EIU web account contains a publicly accessible directory (www for employees, http for students), which means that anyone with web access can see the files in these directories. These directories were designed to be used for easy web publishing. An HTML file placed in your public directory will display as a web page.

Publishing Your Web Pages

To publish your web pages, simply upload your web page documents to your www or http directory. In order to do this, you will need to use a program that supports SFTP transfers. ITS recommends the program WinSCP for web publishing and has provided instructions on how to publish to your web space using that program.

Basic instructions are available for both employees and students for publishing to their web space.
