RSMAS Computing Facility
Group/Personal Web Pages
Any research group associated with the Rosenstiel School can have a web page hosted by the campus server at www.rsmas.miami.edu. This page should be used to describe your research and showcase it.
The web page setup files are stored in a RSMAS shared folder that you can access from your computer. Contact RCF to have a group folder for your group web page set up. Tell RCF the group name and the group contact - the person who will maintain the files and handle administrative contacts on the page. The folder will be created in the RSMAS shared folder of the group contact and will be visible at http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/g/roup/GROUPNAME once you get the page set up in your shared folder. The shared folder can occupy no more than 1G of disk space, which includes the group web page and data plus any material in the share belonging to the contact. If more space is required you must contact the RCF.
You should always keep a backup copy of the files for your group’s pages. The server is backed up regularly but there is no guarantee you will be able to retrieve the most recent version of a file. It is expected that you will be able to restore your group’s web pages in case a major disaster occurs.
The web server at the Rosenstiel School hosts individual personal web pages for any full time RSMAS member with an existing RSMAS email account. These pages must abide by the University of Miami web policies or they will be removed.
To set up your own personal web page follow these steps:
Set up a personal shared folder on the RSMAS disk server.
Step 2 will map your diskspace on the RSMAS server to your workstation. Then go to the "http" folder in the diskspace and populate the directory with your web pages. The web server looks for a file named index.html or index.htm in your http directory as the default document to display. The source of the starting point page, with the required Univesity of Miami disclaimer, can be used as a skeleton for your home page. Remember to right click and save the link target for the starting point HTML file.
For simple web-page creation, if you have a Mac, mount your personal shared folder as smb://krystal.rsmas.miami.edu/home/YOU. Use the iWeb application to create your web page (see the documentation there), then save the material to your "krystal/http" folder.
For Windows/Linux, you can create a Google account (gmail account), then go to http://sites.google.com and create a web page, say ../USERNAME (see the documentation there). When you have finished, mount your personal shared folder, \\krystal\home\YOU (or your linux shared folder). Then open http://sites.google.com/site/USERNAME in your browser and “Save Page as...” to your \\krystal\home\YOU\http folder.
Or you can use a web-page-creation system of your choice.
Personal web pages will have the following URL format:
http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/users/person where person is the first initial prepended to the last name. For example, http://www.rsmas.miami.edu/users/obrown
