Web :: Publishing on the Central Web Server

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Before you can publish information to your site on the HSU Central Web server, you must first activate your account. Once that's done, your site will be available for development at http://www.humboldt.edu/<sitename>.

Logging In

You must be an assigned developer for a site in order to be able to upload content to that site; site owners do not by default have permission to publish to the site. If you are the owner of a site and need to upload content, you will need to register as a developer and assign yourself to your site.

Sites hosted on the Central Web server are accessed using your HSU User Name and Password; no special password associated with the sitename is required. Drupal is now available as a campus-wide web publishing platform, or you can use secure file transfer protocol (sftp) or a web publishing application such as Dreamweaver to upload content to your site.

If you're using Drupal as your site platform, uploading content is simply a matter of selecting the file to upload and clicking the upload button.To use sftp or Dreamweaver, follow the instructions below to connect to your site.


SFTP Connection Instructions

Log in to the sftp server at www2.humboldt.edu with your HSU User Name and Password. Your site will show up as a folder (link). Click on the appropriate link below for system-specific sftp instructions.

Dreamweaver Connection Instructions

Connect to the Central Web server at http://www2.humboldt.edu using your HSU User Name and Password, and then to the host directory at sitename/public_html.

Check "Use Secure FTP" and follow the on-screen instructions to upload your files.

Adding Developers

You can assign multiple developers to your site; you must have at least one to be able to access the site.

  1. Log into the Account Center
  2. Click the "Account Tools" tab
  3. Click “Manage Other Accounts”
  4. Click “Manage Web Accounts”
  5. Click "Assign a Developer"
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to search for and assign a developer.

If your developer is not listed, this is probably because they have not yet registered or completed the required accessibility training. You can invite a person to become a developer by using the "Invite" button, displayed after you do a search.
