How to migrate resources to the Intranet

You should already have gone through the procedures on how to configure your computer to put files on the Intranet.

The process of migrating materials will depend very much on how you created them, and if you have copies on your machine. If you do, then you may wish to simply copy these to the Intranet, following the instructions below.

Once you have transferred the materials, you may wish to edit the old page and insert a message to say that the materials have been moved to a new server. The following HTML may be used as a template :-

<HTML>
<HEAD><TITLE>Page moved !</TITLE>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Refresh" CONTENT="10;URL=http://internal.lboro.ac.uk/co/">
</HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#ffffff">
<H1>Page moved !</H1>
<p>These materials have been moved to the 
<a href="http://internal.lboro.ac.uk/">Intranet</a>.</p>
<p>You will be automatically re-directed to them in 10 seconds.  If
this does not happen, please go to the following URL :- 
<a href="http://internal.lboro.ac.uk/co/">http://internal.lboro.ac.uk/co/</a>
</p>
</BODY>
</HTML>

You should then be able to access the new information via the Intranet. Please check the new pages carefully to ensure that they are correct and reasonably formatted, and that all the links are functioning correctly (e.g. pointing to the Intranet instead of the main Web server).

You should have an icon on your desktop called your-user-name e.g. ccrg looking like this :-

You can save documents to the folders inside this folder, or use drag and drop to add files to the Intranet.
