How to create your own web page on

  1. You have to have an account on
  2. Create a directory called: "public_html" under your home directory with the command: "mkdir public_html"
  3. Create the webpage in a file called "index.html" (you can use your favorite editor, or can transfer it from another location)
  4. Make sure your home directory has executing rights for everybody. (If you're unsure, run the command: "chmod go+x-rw $HOME". This makes sure that no one can peek into (or delete files from) your directory, but the http server of can find the files in your "public_html" directory.)
  5. You can run the same command ("chmod go-rw+x $HOME/public_html") to have similar results for your "public_html" directory
