Access via Map Network Drive

This document covers how to map Storage01 as a network drive. Mapping to storage01 is the recommended method of managing your files on the Storage01 file service. NOTE: To map storage01 from off campus, you must use a VPN connection to Stevens.

 

Personal Web Space

As of Spring 2004, all personal accounts on storage01 have a public_html directory for your personal web pages. No setup is required. You can use that directory immediately and skip the steps below (unless you accidentally removed that directory or changed the permissions already set up for you). Be careful not to place files you want to keep private in the public_html directory! Any files that you put in your public_html directory will be world-readable and available on the web at http://personal.stevens.edu/~username. For example, if you are Mortimer Snerd and your Stevens username is msnerd, your URL will be http://personal.stevens.edu/~msnerd.

 

Group Web Space

Academic/Administrative Departments and Student Organizations may request web space by completing the Group Web Space Request Form. Once the completed form has been received and processed, the web group will be created and the requester will be notified.

Web group space is for active content. Please maintain your group's web pages so the information is current. As a member of a web group, you will connect to the web group's directory in a slightly different way than to your individual directory on storage01. However, you will still use your own Stevens username and password.

The URL of your group's website will be https://web.stevens.edu/groupname (also accessible via www.stevens.edu/groupname or just stevens.edu/groupname) where groupname is the name of your web group. E.g, for a web group named consult, the URL is https://web.stevens.edu/consult.

Web groups are also hosted on the server called storage01. You can access the group's web space by mapping a network drive to your group's folder name: \\storage01.stevens.edu\w3groupname$ (substitute your web group's name for the groupname, and be sure to include the "w3" prefix and "$" suffix) along with your Stevens username and password. You may copy files from your computer using Windows Copy.

  • Do not create a public_html directory. The web group directory is ready to use.

Recreate public_html

If You Accidentally Delete Your public_html directory and/or Change Permissions on Your storage01 Account

Make sure that Windows' Simple File Sharing is disabled.

If you accidentally deleted the directory called public_html you must recreate it at the root of your personal file space.

This is the directory where you will put all files that you wish people to view on the Internet. Caution: Any personal files that you do not wish to be viewed by others should be placed outside the directory called public_html. (All files located inside the public_html directory will be literally world-viewable.)
