WeBWorK problem

Library/Rochester/setDiffEQ6AutonomousStability/ur_de_6_3.pg

(among others) has a broken link to a page that, in the context of my course, gets expressed as:

webwork.math.umass.edu/webwork2_course_files/MATH_331_2_F09/phaseplaneplotters/index.html

I found no such file, so within my course directory MATH_331_2_F09 I created a subdirectory phaseplaneplotters and then uploaded an index.html file that I wrote. It's just a basic html page that has links to JODE. Before uploading to my course via the File Manager, I can view the html page in a browser just fine. It has a standard header:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">


Our local WeBWorK admin tells me he sees the webwork2_course_files variable in the global.conf but does not know how it gets resolved.

Is there some problem with the entire path or file permissions, or what?

Hi Murray,

The subdirectory phaseplaneplotters should go under your course's html directory. So all you have to do is from your course directory MATH_331_2_F09 issue the command

mv phaseplaneplotters html/

Only things under the html directory of a course are accessible from the web and things get resolved so that they point there.
