Word Art


4 save the file in your web assessable folder l.jpg

4. Save the file in your web-assessable folder

  • Save the file in your public_html folder on your U: drive. Remember the file’s full name and extension.

  • If the file is named index.html, it will be displayed automatically when it’s folder is viewed using Internet Explorer:

    • my.fit.edu/~jbarlow will display the file named index.html in jbarlow’s public_html folder

    • my.fit.edu/~jbarlow/syllabus.doc will display the file named syllabus.doc in jbarlow’s public_html folder


Hints common problems l.jpg

Hints & Common Problems

  • Remember filenames and folder names are case-sensitive – Public_HTML is different than public_html

  • Try to avoid using spaces in filenames (unpredictable)

  • If a file is named test.htm and stored in jbarlow’s public_html folder, it can be viewed on the web at my.fit.edu/~jbarlow/test.htm

  • If that same file is stored in folder BUS1234 inside of jbarlow’s public_html folder, it can be viewed on the web at my.fit.edu/~jbarlow/BUS1234/test.htm
