Once you have created your web page, you must upload it to the Bruin OnLine web server so that it is accessible on the Internet. Bruin OnLine's FTP servers require encrypted authentication. You will need to enable secure authentication in your FTP Client to connect to the Bruin OnLine FTP server. Please make sure your client is set to the following:
- FTP/Host Address: webspace.bol.ucla.edu
- Port: 21
- Protocol Type: FTP with TLS/SSL (AUTH TLS - Explicit)
Note: The wording of this setting will vary with different FTP clients.
The names of all HTML files in your directory should end with the extension .html or for a file with PHP scripting, .php. Other file extensions will not display as web pages. Your home page (the main page in your website which is displayed when accessing http://jbruin.bol.ucla.edu) must have the file name of either index.php or index.html.
Some older FTP clients and web publishing software such as Frontpage and Dreamweaver do not support secure authentication. The only FTP clients Bruin OnLine supports at this time are CuteFTP and the FTP client built into BOL webmail.
