How do I create a website on the EECS web server?

Each EECS account holder is given a website directory on the web server ('web') when their acount is created. This directory is physically located on 'web.eecs.umich.edu', and linked back to www.

To publish a website to this space, ssh into web.eecs.umich.edu (NOT www!), and simply create your html files and place them in the folder '~/public_html' located in your home directory and then ensure that each file in that directory is publicly readable by running the command:

chmod -R a+rX ~/public_html

Once uploaded, your website can be accessed by going to either 'http://www.eecs.umich.edu/~uniquename'.

Please note that you must have a default html file called 'index.html'. If you need assistance with learning HTML, please see this FAQ.
