Overall System Status:
One of the questions frequently asked of the Webmaster is, "How can I make files available for downloading from my home page?"
If you have ever wanted to make a file available from your web page, here's how to do it.
If you have a Macintosh or PC file you would like to make available from your home page, follow the steps below.
You will notice that when you follow the link (i.e., click on it), the file downloads to your computer through your web browser. It will be saved in the area of your personal computer you have designated for downloads. This is usually your desktop, or the Downloads folder in your Documents folder.
If these instructions are confusing, or if you run into problems getting your files to download properly, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You should also review Adding Custom File Types, which you may need if you are trying to serve a non-standard file type.
