Purpose: 


1. Web Spaces Explained: 

Each person at IGPP has two web spaces, http://igppweb.ucsd.edu and http://igpppublic.ucsd.edu. Generally, igppweb.ucsd.edu hosts web pages, while igpppublic.ucsd.edu hosts files. However, it is up to you how to utilize each space. Both spaces are served out of each person's network home directory

  • The Sites Folder
    • Within your network home directory is a folder called Sites. Here is where web pages can be hosted and shared using the following URL: 

      https://igppweb.ucsd.edu/~username

      i.e. https://igppweb.ucsd.edu/~hchen

  • The Public Folder
    • Within your network home directory is a folder called Public. Here is where files intended for public distribution via HTTP can be hosted and shared using the following URL: 

      https://igpppublic.ucsd.edu/~username

      i.e. https://igpppublic.ucsd.edu/~hchen


Note: To access each site, direct people to point their web browsers to the URL format above. The username is simply your short login name from your IGPP OpenDirectory account (i.e. hchen). To apply for an account fill out the form in http://igpp.ucsd.edu/computing/forms/adduser
