Setup a Personal Web PageΒΆ

To create and publish a personal webpage, simply place a file called index.html or index.php in ~/public_html/ in your home directory, like so:

/h1/<username>/public_html/index.html

Anything in the public_html directory will be visible by the world via http://users.oden.utexas.edu/~username/<filename>.

If you get a Forbidden message when browsing to your file, make sure that the correct permissions are set with the command chmod a+r file.html. You will also need to make sure that any directories in the path to your file are world-executable.

Our web server respects .htaccess and .htpasswd files, so you can password protect portions of your public_html directory.
