Uploading Your Personal Web Pages
Information Systems · How-To Guides

This how to guide demonstrates how to upload web pages to the personal web space folders on USF Health web servers.  Web pages and associated files may be uploaded via FTP.  This page includes instructions on using WS-FTP or Dreamweaver to make your updates. 

Important Note:  Effective March 26, 2007, the URL for web sites in personal web folders will be in the format http://personal.health.usf.edu/[HSCNET username] . The previous format of http://hsc.usf.edu/~username used under the UNIX system will no longer be valid.


The WS-FTP software can be downloaded from our Windows Shareware Archive page.  The following two figures illustrate the settings needed to configure WS-FTP to access your personal web folder.
