UW-Physics Web Publishing

Personal Web Pages

Personal web pages have already been set up for all UW-Physics AFS accounts. Contact help@physics.wisc.edu to obtain an AFS account.

Files put in the "public/html" subdirectory of your AFS home directory are accessible from the web via the URL...


Your AFS home directory is located at /afs/physics.wisc.edu/home/yourlogin/public/html/

One way to publish personal web content is to configure your web publishing software to use the parameters below.

Access/security Type: SFTP
Server Name: login.physics.wisc.edu
Directory: /afs/physics.wisc.edu/home/yourlogin/public/html

It is also possible to use the "sftp" or "scp" commands to publish web content.  For details, see here.

Another way to access the AFS directory is to configure an AFS client on your own computer.  Instructions here.
