How do I create and maintain a simple static website?

All Lehigh faculty, staff, student, and departmental (in-) accounts already have a webspace set up and ready to go (see the Overview for general information about static websites.). You need a client program to be able to move files into this webspace, and to issue the commands needed to manage that space. For Windows users, the recommended client is MobaXterm, which provides both command-line and file-transfer access. See the instructions for Windows access. For Mac users, the built-in MacOS Terminal application provides command-line access; see the instructions for Mac access.
