Setup a Personal Web Page¶
To create and publish a personal webpage, simply place a file called
index.php in ~/public_html/ in your home
directory, like so:
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
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.
