Accounts are now created with a public_html directory. If your account doesn't have this directory (or it gets destroyed), you can create one by either
ln -s ~yourid/public ~yourid/public_htmlreplacing yourid with your own Rensselaer userid.
This creates a directory called public_html and links it with your existing public directory, basically making these two directories into one with shared files and permissions.
mkdir ~/public_html fs sa ~/public_html system:anyuser readThis keeps your public_html directory separate from your public directory. The first line creates the directory needed by the RPInfo server and the second line makes it (and only it) readable to anyone.
You will want to create a file in your public_html directory called index.html, which is the first file a person views when they access your homepage from RPInfo or any other site on the World Wide Web.
You can then start creating HTML files in this directory file, using the index.html page as an introduction and a place to put links to your files. Once you complete your HTML information and put it in your public_html directory, you can tell people to find your homepage (index.html) at:
where yourid is your RCS user name.
