Personal Page Hosting Service

DEEC provides its employees with a service for the publication of personal web pages, for their enjoyment. This service is available through the URL

The materials hosted through this service are the responsibility of each user and reflect their individual vision. The information published does not represent the opinion or policy of the Department, Faculty or University of Coimbra. Thus, the institution should not be associated with the users' view, expressed in the pages hosted on this service.

The access to the server, for editing the pages, is done through the FTP TLS / SSL protocol and your DEEC credentials.
The table below shows the settings that you should use in your usual TLS / SSL FTP client (we suggest Cyberduck for OSX and Windows). Click here for more complete instructions.

In addition, you must ensure that the folder and all files contained have the correct permissions (755 - u = rwx, g = rx, o = rx), using the command below, using the SFTP client:

chmod -R 755 /home/<username>/public_html

The sites were automatically copied from the old server (THOR). If for some reason you were using the ISO-8859-1 encoding and your page contains unformatted characters, you can create an .htaccess file, with the following content, / home / <username> / public_html, to solve the problem:
