Use Terminal on a Mac or Putty on a PC and Set up Your Web Page on I5 account (You only need to set this up once)
- This will just set up your web page for the first time.
- In order to set up your web page you need to login to your I5 account.
- Here is i5 account information you need to be able to login to your i5 account:
login: your NYUHome Netid
Password: your NYUHome password
Web Folder/directory: public_html (This is the folder on i5 accounts that will serve files to the web. All html and image files should be uploaded into this folder to be viewd on the web)
Web pages address/URL: http//i5.nyu.edu/~netid
If you forgot your password, you can reset it by visiting this webpage: http://start.nyu.edu/
Note: ITS requires a secure login to i5. This can be done using "Putty" on the PC and Terminal on the Mac using "ssh". Terminal is included in OS X on the Mac; but Putty is available via download from ITS at http://www.nyu.edu/its/software/ and is also on the NYU-Net CD which is available from ITS for students at no charge.
Please note: follow these instructions very carefully! They are very straightforward, but if you don't type the commands exactly as given, you may render your account unusable.
These instructions are for the Mac:
1. Double-click on Terminal
2. At the command line, type in ssh firstname.lastname@example.org so you will be logged in under your netid.
On the PC, open "Putty":
- type in the name of the host which is "i5.nyu.edu" in this case
- select "SSH"
- Click "Open".
If this is the first time you are logging in, your password is the same as your NYUHome account password. If you forgot your password, you can reset it by visiting this webpage:
If you continue to have problems login into your i5.nyu.edu account, please inform me ASAP!
