The CampusWeb Server

Websites for Colleges, Departments, Groups*, and Centers are all accommodated on the CampusWeb server. The URL for these sites is http://www.wwu.edu/sharename. Examples of these sites include:

Connecting to your CampusWeb shares

Instead of mapping to each share on CampusWeb that you have access to, you will use the network name of the CampusWeb resource and all the shares you have access to will show up. Read about Connection to CampusWeb.

Editing Permissions

Each share will have an AD group associated with it. The people in this group will have editing privileges. The group name is:

grp.campusweb.www-wwu-edu.sharename

Add or Remove Share Editors

The Helpdesk can add or remove users to the AD group for the share if approved by the Share Owner. Email atus.accounts@wwu.edu with the sharename and the usernames of the people to be added or deleted.

Change Share Owner

The Helpdesk can change the share owner whenever this is required.

Structure of CampusWeb shares

Each share is a folder. When you open the CampusWeb connection, you will see a folder for each share that you have editing privileges for. So if you work on three websites, you will have only one connection to CampusWeb and it will contain the three folders representing the three websites.

Each share folder contains a master folder for test and for production. Each share folder in CampusWeb has a test and prod folder representing the test website and the production website. In the example below the user has editing access to the planet, policies, polsci, and president shares. Inside the president share are the prod and test folders.

Production and Test Folders included

You are not of course required to use the test folder, but it is there if you wish to have the additional safety of making your modifications on test and then moving them to prod when you are ready. To start with your test folder, simply copy the contents of your prod folder to your test folder using Control-C (be careful not to MOVE the contents!).

Viewing your Test site

Test website URL: http://wwwtest.wwu.edu/sharename

Production Site: http://www.wwu.edu/sharename

Create New Share

Contact webhelp and we will work with you to create a new sharename and URL. We will need to know the purpose of the website, the requested sharename, and the universal username of the owner who will approve who has editing access to the site.
