Webpages for SCU Engineering students are available through the Engineering Design Center. This document describes how to set up and use webpages; see "helpme webpage-policy" for policies governing the content of student webpages.

usernamewith your own username). All files must be placed in this directory or subdirectories of it to be visible on the web. Use the URL
http://students.engr.scu.edu/~usernameor one of the operating system-specific hosts (see below) to see your webpage.
Note: The web server will not be able to access your webpages unless they are world-readable. If you do not know how to do this, please see the man page for chmod or umask.
If a URL references a directory instead of a file, the server will look for a file named index.html and use that. If index.html does not exist, the server will also search for other index files in this order: index.htm index.cgi index.pl index.shtml (see below if you do not know what some of these extensions are). If no index is found, the server will generate a listing of files in the directory.
You can write your CGI programs for Sun or Linux workstations. Please note that programs compiled under one operating system will not work under any others, although perl or shell script CGIs may work on multiple machines. The main hostname
students.engr.scu.edu is a Solaris workstation. To run under a different operating system, you must replace that hostname with an operating system-specific variation.
.htaccess" in your home directory. For further information, see the Apache documentation for restricting access by hostname/address restrictions or by username/password authentication. The htpasswd program is currently located in
/opt/apache/conf/studentsdirectory, and files named students.* in
/opt/apache/shared/logsare log files related to the student web server. For problems with CGI programs, you may also want to check
/opt/apache/shared/logs/*.jserv.logfor Java Servlets problems.
