Hosting a Website
Hosting a website in OBJ is quite easy and can be done in a few simple steps. There are two different ways you can set up your OBJ bucket to host a static website.
First Method (Using the Web Interface):
- Log into OBJ and create a bucket. Make sure to choose a bucket name carefully since this will be part of the web URL.
- Upload your index.html file and error.html file (optional) on the bucket that you just created.
- Once the bucket is created, click on Bucket Settings
- On the settings page, click on the blue Make Public button.
- Under Website Hosting, enter the name of your index.html (and optionally error.html) file and hit Submit.
Second Method (Using the CLI):
Once the bucket is configured and all the .html files are uploaded, please log into your UMIACS Directory and update the Home Page to
http://<Bucket_name>.umiacs.io. Replace <Bucket_name> with the name of the bucket you created.
Accessing the Website
You can access your personal website by using the default URL which has the form
http://<Bucket_name>.umiacs.io. Alternatively, you can also visit
www.umiacs.umd.edu/~username to visit your website.
