How to Setup Netscape Composer

This tutorial will guide you through configuring Netscape Composer so that you can move files between your computer and your Server101 web site. You'll need to be online and have Netscape Composer ready to go.

Making a Web Page
So that you can put a HTML page on your (Server101) web site using Composer, you need to make (create) a page. To make a page with Composer, follow these steps:

Publishing the Page
Select "File", then "Publish". The "Publish Files" dialogue box will open, and look similar to this:

a/ Enter these settings in the Publishing Location part of the window:

b/ If you like, you can save your password so that you don't have to enter it every time you log in. If you would like to enable this feature, check the box marked "Save Password".

c/ Put the Page Title at the top of the window, and the Filename.

When you have finished entering these settings, click "OK", and you will connect to Server101. The Security Information box may open, if it does, just click "continue", and your file will upload.

(i) HTML Filenames are case sensitive.

(ii) MemberNames and Passwords are case sensitive

Other Features
In the lower half of the "Publish Files" dialogue box above, you'll see a section titled "Other files to include".

Viewing Your Web Page
To see the page you just uploaded, use the following URL in your web browser:
http://membername.server101.com/filename (available about an hour after joining)
or http://www.server101.com/~membername/
