Connecting to network drives

Defining a personal website in Dreamweaver

Viewing your website

  • Faculty and staff use the following format: http://dpuadweb.depauw.edu/username_web
  • Students use the following format: http://studentweb.depauw.edu/username_20XX_web
Web browsers search your website for a page called index.htm or index.html. If you do not have an index page, you must provide the complete path (i.e., URL) to your site. For example, <http://dpuadweb.depauw.edu/johnsmith_web/graph.html> or <http://studentweb.depauw.edu/johnsmith_2015_web/myproject/graph.html>.
