Publishing with Netscape 4.0

Some Web Help in making a page!

In this exercise we will create a sub-directory of your UNIX home directory called public_html and
set it up so that others can see the files you publish there:

Setting up your Directory

   1.Log in to Copland.
   2.Make your home directory executable by others. At the UNIX prompt, type
        chmod o+X .
          and press the RETURN key. Note that a space and a period (.) follow the "o+X"
          characters.
   3.Create your public_html directory. At the UNIX prompt, type
        mkdir public_html
          and press the RETURN key.
   4.Make your public_html directory executable and readable by others. At the UNIX prompt,
     type
        chmod o+rX public_html
   5.Make your public_html directory your current working directory by typing
          cd public_html
   6.Get the full path to your public_html directory by typing
          pwd
          Copland will respond with something like
                       /home/base/usrc/46/18062/public_html
   7.Write this down in a place where you can find it again. You will need it later for publishing
     your web page.
 

Publishing Your Page

     After you have created and saved your page, you are ready to publish your page. You now
     have to transfer the files to your public_html directory, which you created at the beginning of
     the class on Copland.
        1.From the "File" pull-down menu select "Publish."
        2.In the box labeled "http or ftp location to publish to" enter

          ftp://copland.udel.edu/"path-to-your public_html"

          where you substitute the full path to your public_html directory that you saved from the
          first exercise. Following the example you would enter
                 ftp://copland.udel.edu/home/base/usrc/46/18062/public_html

        3.Fill in the boxes for your user name and password. Do not check the box to remember
          your password. Then click on "OK." Netscape Composer will
          give the choice of publishing all the files in the same folder as the document or all
          related files. Or, you can select from a list the files to publish. Itís a good idea to be
          sure that you only have files you want to use on you Web page on the floppy you are
          using for your home page document.

   4.  Now any one can load your web page on any web browser!
