GoLive is a WYSIWYG editor used to create HTML pages. This document
assumes you are already using and familiar with GoLive.
instructions apply to GoLive 4.0 or newer on a PC with Windows 98

provides FTP (file transfer protocol) functionality which allows
you to transfer files between you computer and the UTORweb server.
While GoLive can transfer any type of file (HTML page, image file
(jpg, tif), wordprocessing file, spreadshhet, etc.), GoLive assumes
that you have a "site" file on your computer which shows the list
of files that you FTP between your local computer and your individual
UTORweb site. (The files list does not have to be identical in both
Establish an Internet connection and start GoLive.
From the menu select File >> Open ... and open the ".site" file
which contains the files you want to FTP.
The first time you connect to the UTORweb server, you will have
to enter some settings. From the menu select Site >> Settings >>
FTP & WEBDAV Server [tab] and fill in the fields as indicated below.
do not recommend entering or saving your UTORid password in the
settings above. Click OK to close the settings box.
your UTORid must be enabled to use the UTORweb service. (Your UTORid
is not the same as your email address, e.g. not email@example.com.)
If you know your email address and need to know your UTORid or to
examine your UTORid options visit www.utorid.utoronto.ca.
To make the connection, from the menu select Site >> FTP Server
>> Connect .
UTORid will appear in the Username box. Enter your UTORid password.

The window on the left is the list of documents contained in your
.site file on your local PC. The window on the right is the list
of files on the UTORweb server. To move documents between the two

you save a file to the "private" folder it will not be accessible
by others. This is a good place to store documents which you would
like to access later, possibly from a different location. For example,
you could save your wordprocessing document, spreadsheet, etc. from
your home PC and then access the documents from a University public
save your file outside the "private" folder than it becomes accessible
to everyone. For example, if you have the document camping4.html
outside of the private folder, it will be accessible from any browser
using the URL http://individual.utoronto.ca/Terry_Lee/camping4.html;
the "Terry_Lee" portion of the URL is one you chose when you activate
your UTORid for use with the UTORweb service. If you are uncertain
what your URL will be, see www.utorid.utoronto.ca. The special file
called index.html is accessed from a browser using http://individual.utoronto.ca/Terry_Lee
(known as the "home" page.) The "http://" portion of the URL can
be dropped in most browsers.
Your FTP session may "time-out" (i.e., your connection to the UTORweb
server may be lost) if you do not transfer files for some time.
Simply re-connect again (Site >> FTP Server >> Connect)
