Setting Up a Personal Pitt Page

The editor in ssh not easy to use, I suggest you create the html and upload via sftp.
If you do not have a sftp client already, an easy one to use is Filezilla

Logging In

Use ssh or sftp to login into linux-ts.it.pitt.edu
Login using your PITT username and password.

Your web files are under the public/html folder.

You are able to view the page at http://www.pitt.edu/~username
For example this page is at https://www.pitt.edu/~gengkon.

The space has a quota of 5 MB which is normally sufficient for basic html.
Larger files such as pictures and archives may be hosted on the pitt.box.com site and linked.

You can also increase your available space by following these steps:
1. Log into https://accounts.pitt.edu
2. Click the "EMAIL & MESSAGING" tab
3. Click the "UNIX QUOTA" link from the dropdown
4. Click the "Increase My UNIX Quota" button (if you have less than 500MB of quota remaining)
