To move your personal web site from the old Mathnet system to the new system. Below your directory ID is the account you use to logon to ARES, Testudo, campus wireless, etc.
If you want a public_html link on the new system that points to the location of your new web site, do the following.
Your web site should now be accessible on the new system but one additional step is required to send visitors from the old system to the new system.
Now, if you go to www.math.umd.edu/~mathnet_username, you should see the URL change to www2.math.umd.edu/~directoryID. It is a good idea to test out multiple links on different areas of your site to make sure everything is working properly.
If you are using .htaccess files or file permissions to restrict access, please continue reading.
For .htaccess files, you need to make them look like the following:
If you want to restrict to users who have Glue accounts using campus directory ID and password:
<limit GET POST> require user <user1>
require user <user2>
require group <see firstname.lastname@example.org to set up groups>
If you want to restrict to users in a .htpasswd file:
AuthUserFile /pub/<your_user_name_here>/directory/.htpasswd(or whatever you named the password file)
AuthName "<a descriptive title should go here"
<Limit GET POST>
deny from all
Permissions in Glue work differently as they use access control lists rather than simple Unix/Linux permissions. To deny access to a file in your web space, remove read access for the owner. The command "chmod u-r <filename>" will remove access to the file for anyone trying to access it from the web.
