Creating Your Website

Configure your account before adding your web content.

  1. Access your AFS home folder. If you are logged into Linux in a lab, you already have access. If not, connect to ra-clay, or sng using SSH before going on to the next step.
  2. Type home.page.setup at the prompt. It will automatically create a WWW folder (if you do not have one) and set the permissions so that everyone can view your website. Use home.page.setup again at any time to fix your website.
  3. Check the web server software configuration (Authcate restricted).

Hint: If home.page.setup is not in your path, use /afs/monash/pack/cflabs/master/usr/local/etc/home_page_setup.sh instead.
