Personal Page Hosting Service

Presentation

ISR provides its employees with a service for the publication of personal web pages. This service is available through the URL http://home.isr.uc.pt/~username.
The materials hosted through this service are the responsibility of each user and reflect their individual vision. The published information does not represent the opinion or policy of the Institute of Systems and Robotics. Thus, the institution should not be associated with the users' view, expressed in the pages hosted on this service.
Personal website management
The access to the server, for editing the pages, is done through the SFTP protocol and your ISR credentials.
The table below shows the settings you should use in your usual SFTP client (we suggest Cyberduck for OSX and WinSCP for Windows).

Location and Permissions

The website must be contained in a folder, named public_html, within your account. If it is not yet created, you must proceed with its creation.
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:

Previous Systems

Forwarders of previously published URLs have been created to ensure their smooth operation. Thus http://www.isr.uc.pt/~username and http://mail.isr.uc.pt/~username, automatically point to http://home.isr.uc.pt/~username.

The sites were automatically copied from the old server (MAIL ISR). 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:
AddDefaultCharset iso-8859-1
