Students are required to follow the GPC Personal Web Page Procedure outlined in the Georgia Perimeter College World Wide Web Policy.

Accessing Your Directory

Students are encouraged to use a secure FTP program for accessing their web directory. SecureFX is the program of choice. SecureFX can be downloaded for a discounted fee for students from http://www.vandyke.com/pricing/educational/applications/student.html. Follow the instructions for accessing your directory using FTP+SSH2. Session Configuration is as follows:

Session >>

  • Name: student.gpc.edu
  • Protocol: FTP over SSH2

FTP Login >>

  • Hostname: student.gpc.edu
  • Port: 21
  • Username: (your GPC email username)
  • Password: (your GPC email password)
  • Initial directory: public_html/

Use your GPC email username and password to access your directory on the server. Directories accessible from the web should be created under the public_html directory.

To access your directory in a browser, use your username prefixed by a tilde '~'. For example, http://www.gpc.edu/~pjoseph/. Keep in mind that any PHP code is only processed when the file is fetched from the server - by accessing your site using http://www.gpc.edu/~yourusername in your browser. PHP cannot be processed locally (on files resident on your computer).

Server Programs

Our server runs on a UNIX system using Apache as our web server. PHP 5.3.3 is the server-side scripting available. Information on php can be found at: http://www.php.net/manual/en/.
