Setting up a Personal Web Page

Once logged in on diesel you'll find yourself in your home directory. Now you should do the followings:

To setup your home page:

  1. mkdir ~/public_html
  2. chmod 755 ~/public_html
  3. chmod o+x ~
  4. chmod o+x ~/..
  5. Now create your web documents in ~/public_html/

Your home page should be accessable from http://www.eelab.usyd.edu.au/~username/

where "username" is your login name.

Note that the web server also recognizes HTML files that have a file type of .html ,.htm or .shtml

How does one access their personal WWW directory?
