Get one account with at least one user number validated for UTS.
Get a separate user number for each person who will be publishing.
Get all user numbers validated for UTS. As a general rule, people
responsible for producing printed publications in your department
should be responsible for the Web versions of those documents.
If you need help to open an account, add user numbers to an existing
account, or get existing user numbers validated for UTS, talk to your
Technical Support Contact. For more information, call the ITS accounting
office at 475-9210 and say, "I am with ________ department and want
to publish in the Web from UTS." (You fill in the blank.)
All publishers must login to UTS (host name=uts.cc.utexas.edu) at least once to change their login
name. Names must
be 8 or fewer characters. Change your login name to one that reflects
the department you work for. Do not change it to your name. For example,
zoology is a good login name, billy is not. The name
you pick is important, because you will sign all Web pages:
When you transfer maintenance of the department's pages to another
member of the department, remember to transfer the user name, password,
and other information necessary for the new person to assume responsibility
for the pages.
Request a publishing directory
Research centers, academic departments, and administrative units
have special publishing areas on Web Central,
and the Web Central test server
is also available to departmental publishers for use as a test machine
for Web Central. All of Web Central is not mirrored on this test server,
however, all files used by the second level templates are available.
To request a publishing directory on Web Central and/or the Web Central
test server, complete
this form (requires UT EID). You will receive confirmation, along
with instructions on how to access the directory, within two work
days. You will own and manage this directory.
You will be publishing from Web Central, a UNIX machine. You must
learn the tips and techniques for managing your files and directories.
Put your files in your publishing directory
Put all the files that you want to publish in your new publishing
directory or in subdirectories that you create. If you create your
HTML files on a Mac or PC, use Fetch or WS_FTP to transfer them from
your microcomputer to your publishing directory. See instructions
