Quick Tips

  • You must use a Secure FTP program, such as FileZilla or Dreamweaver, to connect to people.cofc.edu.
  • Your people.cofc.edu username and password are the same username and password you use to log onto your desktop computer and email.
  • Ensure that your homepage's filename is index.html, index.htm, or index.php so that you can be listed in the Faculty/Staff website directory. Please contact Helpdesk and open a support ticket if you do not wish to be listed.
  • Filenames are case-sensitive on people.cofc.edu. It is strongly recommended to use all-lowercase filenames and abstain from using spaces in filenames.
  • Anything uploaded to Web space should be considered public. Do not upload private or sensitive files.
  • Users are given 200 MB of Web space. If this is insufficient, or you run into your quota, please contact Helpdesk and open a support ticket.
  • If you wish to upload media, such as movies or audio files, consider hosting on the College's streaming server instead. Multimedia can often consume the 200 MB limit rather rapidly.
