Make my default home page something other than http://people.clemson.edu/~myusername?
All student, faculty, staff, and organization usernames automatically have personal web space created for them in their Novell user space. If you have an account on the general purpose linux machine Clemix, then you also have personal web space there as well. The space is your public.www directory in your U: drive or the public html directory in your home directory on Clemix. Any html files that you put there will be visible from the web. Your home page should be named index.html for it to appear under the web address http://www.clemson.edu/~yourusername for your Novell space or http://myweb.clemson.edu/~yourusername for your Clemix space. You may use long file names, but there must not be any spaces in the name. Note: your personal web space is NOT indexed by the Google search engine.
Put a search form on my web page?
If you want a page in your Novell space to be your home page then you must name it index.htm or index.html. The Clemson University Phonebook web page has a link in it under each person's name for their home page. If you want some other page or web address to come up then you can do one of two things:
- Change your home page in the phonebook directly by going to http://www.clemson.edu/phonebook and clicking on "My Record". At the bottom of your profile listing you will see a link to "Click here to enter an alternate URL for your homepage" where you can list the web address you want published instead of your Clemson default page.
- You can redirect your Clemson page to the location of your prefered home page. To do so you need to put the following lines in your index.htm file:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" Content="0;URL=http:newwebaddress">
where you replace newwebaddress with the web address of the page you want to appear when someone clicks on your link (i.e. //myweb.clemson.edu/~username/mypage.htm)
Put a counter on my web page?

Password-protect my web page?
Go to the "CCIT FormMail Information Page" for details on creating a form whose data will be mailed to you from your Clemson web page
Have my club or organization's web page listed on the Student Organizations Page?
Go to the "Securing web pages with HTACCESS.TXT" page for details on how to protect your Novell-based web pages
FTP files to my web space?
All formally recognized student organizations are listed at http://www.clemson.edu/studentaffairs/studentinvolvement/student_org_dir.php. Organization's URL information is listed there. By default your web address is your organization's U: drive (Novell-based) web site. To have that changed email ITSWebmaster-L@clemson.edu.
Change my information in the online University Phone Book?
Go to the "CCIT FTP Information Page" for details on how to ftp to your Novell-based Clemson web space.
Write my own cgi's?
Employee information comes from the Employee database. Contact the individual in your department who is responsible for PeopleSoft data to have your record changed. Student information comes from the Student database. Some of it you can change from within SIS. The rest you must contact the Student Records Office to have changed. You can control whether your phone number, photo, and web address are published by going to http://www.clemson.edu/phonebook and clicking on "My Record".
You can write your own cgi programs in both your personal web space and any Novell-based departmental or organization web space in either perl or php (php is preferred). You cannot use C or C++, except on Clemix based web sites.
PHP is a very powerful language that requires no special editors and can be included inside your HTML code. For more information on PHP see the PHP home page at http://www.php.net At Clemson, if you want to create a PHP script name your file with the .php extension. If there is proper php code embedded in your html, it will be run. No special editor is needed to write PHP scripts.

The web space let me use long file names?
You can code Java applets in your web space but not Java Script or server-side Java such as jsp or servlets. This is because of the type of webservers which serve the Departmental and personal pages.
The web space let me use asp or .net?
You can use long file names but you must not include any spaces in the file name. Use underscore characters (_) as spacers if you need them.
All of Clemson's general purpose web servers are linux servers rather than Windows. They do not "speak" MicroSoft" so they cannot support asp or .net.
