Web Folder Details

By default students accounts are located under the directory;

/home/studentname

The folder that is served up by the Apache web server for public display is;

/home/studentname/public_html

The full web reference to the home web folder is therefore:

http://students.ee.sun.ac.za/home/studentname/public_html

Apache shortens the web folder path name using the tilde (~).

Therefore the Apache web server shortened reference is:

http://students.ee.sun.ac.za/~studentname

Publishing Methods

FTP

  • Connect to the host name below using the FTP protocol :
ftp.ee.sun.ac.za
  • Copy the web files to the public_html folder.
  • Check that your FTP publishing software can specify a folder to copy the files to.

Please note: FTP publishing from outside the campus is not allowed.

SSH

  • Connect to the host name below using the SSH protocol :
students.ee.sun.ac.za
  • Copy the web files to the public_html folder.
  • Check that your SSH publishing software can specify a folder to copy the files to.
