Web: Personal Pages

UNF provides hosting space on the www.unf.edu domain for the publication of personal Web pages by active faculty, staff, and students. Users are responsible for the development and maintenance of personal Web pages, as well as acquiring the necessary software to do so.

  • Web address is based on the user's alias / N number:
    www.unf.edu/~ozzie.osprey or  www.unf.edu/~n00001234 
  • HTML delivery
  • Requires SFTP (Port 22) connections for upload (see information below about use of SSH app called PuTTY)
  • Does not support .asp or Microsoft Frontpage extensions
  • Does not support databases or Wordpress 
Currently active faculty, staff, and students
  • Access is automatically provided for active user accounts (N numbers).

Acquire SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) App

SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) is used to transfer files from your desktop to the server. Non-secure FTP connections will not work with UNF's server. In other words, you must use SFTP (Port 22) not FTP.

Any SFTP app should work, but if you are not sure which one to use, we recommend PuTTY. It can be downloaded from here.

Connecting to the Server

Information you will need to setup access:

  1. Hostname is osprey.unf.edu
  2. Username is your UNF ID / N number (note: "n" must be lowercase, for example "n00001234")
  3. Password is your UNF ID password (the same used to access all other UNF accounts, such as myWings).
  4. Port should be set to 22 if not by default.

NOTE:
The full path to your Osprey home page will be /home/##/~n00001234 ...where ## are the last two digits of your N Number and n00001234 is your N Number.


Creating the Homepage Folder & Index Page

Once logged in, all your Web page files should be located within a directory called "homepage". If the folder does not exist, you will need to create it. Both the "homepage" folder and the "index.html" (homepage file) must be lowercase.


Viewing your Site

After transferring files to the server, the site can be accessed at www.unf.edu/~________, which works with both your user alias and your N number. For example: www.unf.edu/~ozzie.osprey or www.unf.edu/~n00001234.
