Personal Home Page

Access

Your home directory used for the web server can be accessed on the login host web-login.inf.ethz.ch. You can log in to this system using a secure shell or SFTP client with your ETH user name and mail service password. The error log is accessible in /logs.

Alternatively the home directory is also accessible via SMB/CIFS. The share name is \\www.fs.inf.ethz.ch\www-people\login where login is your ETH user name.

Access Control

Details about the limitations of access control via .htaccess are documented here.

Redirect

If you already have a personal home page elsewhere then you can set up a redirect to that right now or for when your web user account is deleted.

Error Log

The error log /logs/error_log is accessible by all users on web-login.inf.ethz.ch. Especially while writing pages in PHP or changing .htaccess files it is recommended to check for errors. Use

tail -f /logs/error_log

to spot errors and warnings as they are generated.
