Getting Started

Getting Started:

•  Go to the WebSpace site at http://webspace.utexas.edu . You might notice that the URL changes to https://webspace.utexas.edu/xythoswfs/webui ("https" indicates that you are entering a secure Web site).

•  Log on with your UT EID and password.

This is the WebSpace tool bar that you will use to move to different directories, upload and download files, move and rename files, and create new directories to better manage your files.

When first using WebSpace, your account appears as a general directory (often called the "root" directory). To manage your files, you may create new sub-directories that appear as folders in your account. By creating sub-directories (using the "new directory" button on the toolbar), you can easily upload files to the desired location, rather than separately uploading to the general directory and then moving the file.

WebSpace features and icons:

You will see that each file you upload to WebSpace will appear in the Directory with the following icons: "i" for information, a padlock for locked or unlocked, a hand for shared or not shared, and an "x" for delete. These icons also appear at the top of the Directory near your UTEID and following each sub-directory. Each of these icons represents different WebSpace features that can be applied to your files.
