Hi Niels,

All 40 of my students get their own web server, but the root folders are cluttered with files that are not required (index.html, .vscode, and webConfig.xml). When they try to drag and drop their index.html page to the root folder, it gives then a authorization error. They have to delete your index.html document first.

Is there any way this can be cleaned up?

Hi Jim,

All of the above files / folders you are mentioning are part of an on going strategy, and are requirements from customers.

I can understand that you would like it more simple/ clean - but all of the above has a purpose:

index.html - is a confirmation of the server was created normally, otherwise you will see a 404 error if you go the the web page. It is a simple "welcome to..." page and you are doing right by just replace it.

It the folder that Visual Studio Code is using to communicate with IceBreak - It need to be in the server root folder - it can not be placed anywhere else.

It contains the extra settings -  default settings requires to let IceBreak work in a modern environment: I.e. in the webConfig.xml you will see that UTF-8 only is enabled, chunked support is enabled, and this is also where you set your hives.

A hive is a virtual folder and an associated applications library - so maybe you should create a "hive" for each student instead a of a dedicated server instance for each - just thinking loud. 

Best regards,
