I have a question about University pages, or pages with many many users. I have see pages where a large university has hundreds of home pages for their students. Is there a script of some sort that searches a machine or searches all the /~username directories for a home.html file or something and then creates a html file with all the links in it? We are going to use NFS to mount space on a seperate machine for users home pages. I have noticed that if there is no home.htm(l) then the browser will default to listing the files in the directory. Is there a setting in one of the configuration files for the server to avoid this? Thans for any help. -- Chris Hackett (firstname.lastname@example.org) WWW Developer Georgia Southern University 912-681-5215 ----- End Included Message ----- Chris, You will have to write your own script to do this, but as you are using UNIX you can search for the home pages using the 'find' command. Look at the man page for this as the find command is very difficult to master. Hope this is helpful, Thanks, Adam.
