Faculty Web Publishing

There are many web publishing needs for LAS Faculty and ATLAS provides several options for publishing your work online.


If you are looking for a simple place to publish HTML pages and files you can request space on the Faculty.LAS.illinois.edu server.  Any LAS faculty can have space based on their netid in this space.  Ex. http://faculty.las.illinois.edu/netid.  Files can be moved to your space using a Windows or Macintosh file shares, or by using SFTP.  Contact atlas-web@illinois.edu to request a new faculty space.

Another option for faculty is to create a WordPress site on the campus PIE service.  WordPress allows for easier editing of your site content from anywhere you have a web connection.  ATLAS has created several LAS themes that can tie your WordPress site to the LAS College and Campus branding.  The PIE service also offers several other themes that provide several looks for your site.  You can find more information about PIE here and if you need help getting started, contact atlas-web@illinois.edu.


For situations where you need other software, the campus hosting service called cPanel may meet your needs.  It provides simple one-click installations of many open-source web based software in a safe hosting space.  You can also use this space for custom applications you have created in PHP or Python and using MySQL or PostgreSQL databases.  You can find more information about cPanel here and if you need help getting started, contact atlas-web@illinois.edu.
