This document describes how to create and manage a public Web site in OakShare.
Step #1: Create your Web Site
- Either utilize a tool or write it yourself.
Step #2: Log into OakShare
Step #3: Create the Web directory and configure users and permissions
Click the “New Folder” icon
Enter “web” as the name of the directory.
Click the "Next" button to choose the users with whom you wish to share the directory.
- Enter the names of the users with whom you wish to share the directory.
Click the "Next" button to verify the permissions.
- Click the radio buttons to select which permissions to give.
NOTE: To make your website public, select the permissions needed for the public group. See below.
NOTE: To make your website private, select no permissions for the public group and set permissions for only those users that were selected to share. See below.
Click the "Next" button to configure the directory.
Click the "Next" button to send an e-mail to those with whom you wish to share the directory.
Click "Also send the email to me" to send the e-mail to yourself in order to verify that the message has been sent to the recipients.
- The results will display in your document manager.
Alternately, you can select the directory and click the "Share" button to select users, permissions, and configurations.
Double click the new "web" directory in order to open it.
Click the "Upload" button to upload the files that you wish to have in that directory.
Click the "Browse" button to select the files you wish to upload.
Click the "Start Upload" button to upload the files to your new "web" directory.
The file should now be in your newly created "web" directory.
Step #4: Test the Web Site
Log out of OakShare.
View the Web site at https://files.oakland.edu/users/[NetID]/web/index.html to confirm that it functions properly.
- If the Web site does not display, then consult the previous steps of the tutorial.
