Your P: Drive

Welcome to Winter 2010!

Here's a quick tip that might prove helpful. Did you know that everyone with a PawPrint account at WOU -- meaning all students, staff, and faculty -- have access to their own Web space?

It's called the P: drive, or your public_html area. It shows up when you login on campus, or via Remote Desktop. Anything you save into your P: drive is automatically available on the Internet.

How does it work? It's simple. Just save a file into your P: drive, then open your Internet browser and type your Web address:


Of course, you'd replace "username09" with your own PawPrint login. If you don't have an index.html file, then your browser will just list the files in your P: drive. Anyone can then open or copy these files -- though no one can change the originals via the Web.

You can also create real Web pages of course, but this is an easy way to share files with others without having to use a Web editor.
