Resources for Staff, Students, and Visitors

If you have a granby account, follow these steps to set up your personal webpage:

  • Log into your granby account
  • if it does not yet exist, create the directory public_html
     $ mkdir public_html 
  • Go into the public_html directory and make the file index.html
    cd public_html
    emacs index.html 
  • write something in this file (preferrably html code) and close
  • By default, all pages created on granby are NOT readable by everyone. therefore you now have to make this file readable, AND the directories accessable.
    $ chmod a+r index.html
    $ cd ../
    $ chmod a+x public_html
    $ cd ../
    $ chmod a+x ppxxxx 
    Here, fill in your own account instead of ppxxxxx
  • Have a look at; your page should appear there
  • Don't forget to make each file you create readable and every directory you make accessable!
