Access your Personal Web Page

Your personal web site can be viewed in nearly any browser, by almost anyone in the world. All that is required is to know that address of the web site.

For AWC Students:

The AWC students, the address for your web site will be:
http://toro.azwestern.edu/~username/filename
Where username is your AWC student email username/logon.
and filename is the name of the file or resource to be accessed.

Example: If your AWC username is 'abc' and the filename is 'mypage.htm' the address for your web site will be:
http://toro.azwestern.edu/~abc/mypage.htm

For NAU Students:

The NAU students, the address for your web site will be:
http://dana.ucc.nau.edu/~username/filename

Where username is your NAU student email username/logon.
and filename is the name of the file or resource to be accessed.

Example: If your NAU username is 'abc' and the filename is 'mypage.htm" the address for your web site will be:
http://dana.ucc.nau.edu/~abc/mypage.htm

Connect to/modify your Personal Web Page

Access to your personal web space for editing purposes is currently only supported while using computers located on the main AWC/NAU-Yuma campus and only via Windows file sharing. Other methods of transferring files or editing, such as FTP or Front PageServer Extensions are not available.

How you connect to your personal web space depends largely on where you are at on campus. Computers in the Academic Complex Computer Lab (ACCL), AC146, and AC159 automatically map a network drive (W:) to the appropriate share for AWC and NAU students. Users in these locations can access their web space by navigating via Windows Explorer to the W: drive.

AWC students who wish to access their personal web space from computers outside of the ACCL (for example, BA101, BA119, etc.) will need to follow the instructions presented below to create a connection to the share.

How to Manually Map a Drive to your Web Space Share

Note: Students using computers in the ACCL, AC146 and AC159 can skip directly to Step 7

Step 1
On the computer desktop locate the icon for 'My Computer.'
Step 2
Right click on the 'My Computer' icon and select 'Map Network Drive...' from the context menu.
Step 3
On the 'Map Network Drive' dialog box, select a drive letter in the Drive: selection box, and enter \\toro.azwestern.edu\webhome in the Folder: selection box. Note: The address will only be partly visible.
Step 4
Click the 'Connect using a different user name' link.
Step 5
a.) Enter awc-students\your user name in the User name: box. Ex. If your username was zz9, you would enter awc-students\zz9
b.) Enter the password for your account in the Password: box
c.) Click the OK button
Note: Your user name is the same as the logon you were assigned when your AWC student email account was built. If you don't have an AWC student email account you will need to obtain one from the front desk of the ACCL before you can proceed.
Step 6
Make sure that the 'Reconnect at logon' check box is not checked
Click the Finish button on the Map Network Drive dialog box
Windows will attempt to connect the drive. If you should receive an error message, check that you have properly entered:
a.) The folder name
b.) Your username
c.) Your password
Step 7
If a window displaying the contents of the mapped drive doesn't automatically open, you can navigate to the drive by double clicking on 'My Computer'.
You should see an icon for a drive titled 'webhome on toro.azwestern.edu'
Double click on the drive icon to open your web space.
Step 8
You can now add/modify files in your web space.
