Information for publishing unit and campus organization websites on k-state.edu.
Web space is available to K-State units and campus organizations registered with the Office of Student Activities and Services. Requested web space is usually available within a couple of days of receiving the form. The requestor and those given access will receive e-mail when the space is ready that includes the details about your directory and those given access.
Access is given on a per user basis, so you use your own eID and password to upload files.
To upload files to your web space, you will need a secure transfer client. WinSCP is an excellent choice and can be found under Communication tools. Here are some alternatives if you are using a Macintosh.
When you open your SCP client it will ask you for a Host name, User name, and Password.
Next, under Environment on the left side select Directories. Under Remote directory enter the directory path for your website:
For example, if you are creating a website for the history department and your directory name is "history".
Your base directory would look like this
We recommend you save your session, then Login. Now you can start uploading and editing files in your web space.
K-State units are encouraged to take advantage of the k-state.edu-style templates for easy and accessible webpage development.
When you need to change permissions or access to your website, send e-mail to email@example.com with the eIDs of the people you would like to add or remove from the allowed list. Note that only the president or advisor may make a request for a campus organization.
