Your Apache Webspace
How to use PSFTP (Comes with Putty) to upload to your public_html web space.
Upload files to your Apache Web Space.
Now that Putty and PSFTP is configured correctly, you can utlise your webspace much easier.
It is worth noting here a couple of limitations of your Apache Web Space.
1. No PHP Enabled
2. No SSI Enabled.
Not a great deal in the great scheme of things as your Apache Web Space is not intended to be a full blown website, just a place for you to put some information about yourself, your project(s) and other things you might think useful to others. So things like using
<!--#include virtual="navigation.ssi" --> or
<? require_once = "navigation.inc" ?> are not available.
Open a DOS Prompt box and navigate to the root directory of your locally stored site files.
Type in 'psftp people.apache.org' to login to your area. *
Type in 'cd public_html' to go to the root area of your web space.
Type in 'put index.html' to , erm, put an index.html file in place on your site.
The good thing about PSFTP it seems to me is you can use Windows AND Unix commands !
* - A reminder that 'C:\Program Files\Putty' needs to be in your System Path. If not you would have to run PSFTP from within the Putty directory which would be a right pain having to 'lcd' to your site files all the time. (lcd = local current directory).
For those mainly Windows users, one can forget Unix commands so a good site for reminders is http://www.indiana.edu/~uitspubs/b017/
