SETTING UP WEB PAGES IN YOUR ACCOUNTS
When you registered your user accounts on the HP server, a file was
created in the public_html directory called Profile.html. This file
your name and a link to your e-mail. This file can be edited to create a
personal web page for yourself.
In order to edit this file, from the main menu type "g files". This will
bring up a listing of the directories in your account. One of these
directories is public_html. If you select this directory and hit enter, a
listing of all of the files and sub-directories contained within it will
be listed. This is where you will find the Profile.html file.
To edit profile.html, simply select it with the cursor, and then type "e".
This will bring the html code for this file up into the pico editor. You
can then start creating your main page.
To add more pages to the site, from the listing of files in the
public_html directory, type "f" and then select New File. This will create
a new empty file in that directory for you. You then need to proceed as
above by selecting the file, and typing "e" to edit it.
The URL for your personal page is generated automatically. It is simply
http://hp.bccna.bc.ca/~and then your loginID. For example:
A second option to creating a web page on your account is to leave your
personal profile as it is, and to create a new file called index.html. By
default, this file will be looked for first, and if it is not located,
then the Profile.html is what will be displayed. The index.html will
become the main page for your site. For the Library web pages, this is the
suggested method, since when you register as an IP, the main page should
be called index.html.
Finally, if you are not comfortable using the pico editor on this system
to create your web pages, you can create your pages outside of your
account. When you are ready to put your site up, you can simply FTP it to
your account. If this is the method you would like to use, then just make
sure that the main page of your site is called index.html, and when you
FTP the pages into your account, just make sure that you put it in the
public_html directory. The address for the page will be the same as above.
If the pages are to be installed into an IP, then they can go anywhere in
