Web :: Password-protecting Directories

For security reasons, web access to directories must be limited and protected against tampering. The process of limiting web access to a directory behind a user name and password involves two steps. For each of these steps, you will need to create a text file using a simple text editor such as Notepad, TextEdit, or TextWrangler. After performing the steps outlined below, you will need to save the file as a text file using the filenames exactly as specified in the instructions. These files  then need to be uploaded to the HSU web server with your sftp client as directed. 


Web :: Accessibility Training

Web :: Activating & Using Your Personal Web Site

All Humboldt State University students, faculty and staff can create their own account on the local campus web server to host individual and faculty course websites; that account is valid for the entire time they are associated with HSU. To ensure that all HSU-hosted websites are accessible to the entire campus community, you are required to take a short survey before their account is activated.
