How to get started publishing web pages at Eastern
The first step to publishing Web pages at Eastern is to read and agree to the official Eastern Web Policy. Next, browse to the Web Publishing Authorization Form. The form is fill-able online. Once you have completed the form, print it out. Obtain the required signatures, yours and your supervisor, and then send the form via campus mail to the appropriate person - see the form for details. Use the instructions below to help in completing the form.
Faculty and staff members wishing to publish personal Web pages, must check the "Individual/personal" selection on the form. Faculty/Staff personal web page publishing does not require a Chair/Director signature. Completed forms should be sent directly to Bill Kenney, web server administrator, in Media Room 252.
Once your account has been created, you will receive an email from Bill informing you of your username, initial password and path to the directory you will be publishing to. When you receive this email, please contact Eastern's Coordinator of Web Communications, Kevin Gill, at x5-5793 for installation and training on the use of SSH Secure Shell software to publish your web pages. Mac users should contact Kevin for information on Fetch software availability and training.
Faculty and staff members may also maintain Departmental pages. If your Departmental Chair/Director has designated you to publish to your Department's web site, check the "Departmental" selection on the form and have the Chair/Director sign on the line provided.
Student workers designated to maintain Departmental web pages by the Department Chair/Director, may obtain a Web publishing account for the purpose of maintaining the Department web site by following this same procedure.
Students who have been designated to maintain official club web sites, must complete a Web Publishing Authorization Form and have the club's advisor sign in the Department Chair/Director space.
Students wishing to publish their own personal web pages do not need to complete a Web Publishing Authorization form. Instructions on how-to publish student personal web pages are located here.
Completed Web Publishing Authorization Forms are sent to Bill Kenney, Web Server Administrator, for account creation. Once your account has been created, you will receive an email from Bill informing you of your username, initial password and path to the directory you will be publishing to. When you receive this email, please contact Eastern's Coordinator of Web Communications, Kevin Gill, at x5-5793 for installation and training on the use of SSH Secure Shell software to publish your web pages. Mac users should contact Kevin for information on Fetch software availability and training.
