  • If your website is not created yet, please submit a support ticket here, help.fsu.edu
  • Use WebDAV clients to manage your website: e.g., My Network Places (under Windows) or Connect to Server (on the Mac)

DSC's public_html Solution

  • http://people.sc.fsu.edu/~FSUID or http://sc.fsu.edu/~FSUID
  1. Change permissions of your home directory
    chmod 0755 ~

    mkdir ~/public_html
  3. Change permissions of your public_html directory
    chmod 755 ~/public_html
  4. Add content to your public_html (space counts towards your quota)
