So now you have the basics to write the HTML code, but if you want to make a personal web page, how do you get it up on the LPL web pages?
Well, its real easy, you need to log in to your LPL UNIX
account. This is probably where you get your e-mail. In
your home directory on LPL (the directory that you're in
when you log in) you must create a directory called
public_html (you can do this with the command
mkdir public_html). You have to make this
directory world readable, so that everyone can see your
webpage. To do this, you can use the command
a+r public_html, from your home directory. Now,
you're all set. Put all the HTML files into this directory
(or make more directories under this), and you'll be
able to see them on the web.
So what's the address of my new pages? The address of the HTML files in your public_html directory will be:
Where username is your username. For example, the web address for my web page is http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/~rbeyer.
