These instructions assume you are using a Windows computer that is running CoreFTP Lite. If you are at home, make sure you have an active Internet connection. If you are using a Macintosh, follow the Fugu instructions instead.

To download CoreFTP Lite (a free program), go to: http://www.coreftp.com

1) Launch CoreFTP Lite. Your screen will look something like this:

Note that these screenshots may look a little different than what you actually see.

2) In the "Site Name" field, enter "Webhawks" (if it is not already there).

3) In the "Host / IP / URL" field, enter "webhawks.org" (if it is not already there).

4) In the "Username" field, enter your Webhawks user name.

Here is how to determine your Webhawks user name:

Your Webhawks user name starts with the Cabrillo course number (for example, "dm60", "dm61", "dm62", or "dm70") followed by your Cabrillo student network account name.

For example, the Webhawks user name for Mary Johnson whose Cabrillo ID number is 1234567 and is in the dm60 class would be "dm60majohn4567".

5) In the "Password" field, enter your Webhawks password.

Here is how to determine your your Webhawks password for the class:

Your Webhawks password is your birthdate. The format is mmddyy.

For example, if your birthdate is August 28, 1976, your password would be 082876.

6) Make sure the "SSH" checkbox is checked. The Webhawks Web server uses a secure protocol, and will not successfully connect unless the "SSH" box is checked.

Your screen will look something like this (note, graphics generated before dm164 became dm160c):

7) Click "Connect" to connect.

If you make a successful connection, your screen will look something like this:

8) You should see a window showing the contents of your local disk on the left, and the contents of your home directory of the Webhawks server on the right. Don't worry about what the left side shows. The right side is what's important here; it should show you your "public_html" folder.

9) Double-click on your "public_html" folder to see its contents (if you have never uploaded any files into it, it will be empty.)

Your screen will look something like this:

10) Now that you have the proper remote directory (your "public_html" folder on the server) selected to receive files, you are ready to upload files.

You can upload files from your disk to the Web server in one of two ways. First, you can navigate through your hard disk's file system using the left side of the window, select the file you wish to upload, and then click the right arrow button. Inexperienced computer users usually find this method a bit confusing, so I recommend the "drag and drop" method: Simply drag the icon of the file you wish to upload into the right side of the window.

11) The first file you should upload is your home page (called "index.html"). Drag this file into the right side of the window (which shows the contents of your "public_html" directory).

12) After a few moments you'll see your file appear on the right.

Your screen will look something like this:

13) You have successfully uploaded your file! You can now continue to upload more files if you wish.

14) When you are ready to view your page in your Web browser, launch your browser (Firefox, Explorer or Mozilla, for example) and go to the following URL:
http://webhawks.org/~yourusername/
to view your home page.
