Middlebury

Creating Web Pages

Faculty, staff, and students at Middlebury can create their own web pages for either academic or personal use.

Blogging Platforms

Anyone can create a blog like these examples. For help with our Blogs, see our Blogging documentation, or you can get more specific info about WordPress, our blogging software.

Faculty Profiles

For faculty, one alternative to creating a personal web site is creating a profile page on the College web site. The Faculty Profiles in Drupal page describes this option.

Community Pages aka Midd-Unix

We used to support creating web pages using html on our community pages (http://community.middlebury.edu). The server that runs the community pages is known as midd-unix. Creating web pages on the community server requires knowledge of HTML or access to expensive web design software. We decided to recommend and support the blogs since they are free and do not require that you know HTML. Therefore, this option is no longer fully supported.

Connecting to Midd-Unix

NOTE: Midd-Unix accounts are not being created any more! Please see above for more details. Some faculty, staff and student personal web pages are still kept on Midd-Unix. You can connect to Midd-Unix while on the Middlebury campus or from off the campus.

On Campus

Connect using the End User Guides as appropriate to your operating system.

Off Campus

  1. Download and install WinSCP.
  2. Open WinSCP and in the window that appears type in:
    Host name: midd-unix.middlebury.edu

    Type your Middlebury College username and password (same as the one for your email address).
    Press Enter. You will be connected to midd-unix.
