How to make your own home page.
- In your home directory, create a subdirectory called web_html.
The command is mkdir web_html.
- Make the public directory accessible to the world.
The command is chmod 755 web_html.
- Within the directory web_html, create a file called index.html. That is
the file that your browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc.) automatically
looks for when it enters your directory. You can look at other people's
home pages (use View Document Source in your browser) to get ideas.
- Make your index.html file accessible to the world.
The command is chmod 644 index.html
