Creating a webpage hosted on the maths server

• Mozilla has a nice set of resources for learning web development (and it caters to all appetites, including novices).
• Alternatively, one can browse through standard resources such as W3schools.
• One can also simply copy your favourite faculty member’s webpage design by right clicking anywhere on that webpage and clicking on view source.

Making a page on our server

• Your web page is the file index.html in the directory public_html in your home folder on the server math.iisc.ac.in, i.e., for example /home/mickeymouse/public_html

• NOTE: For your web page to be seen, you must set permissions for it to be readable (see below for how to do this).

• To make a web padge, ssh into your mathematics account. (See this page for details.) create a folder called public_html and give it the correct permissions. bash mkdir public_html chmod go+rX public_html 

• Create your webpage (i.e., file named index.html) locally, i.e., on your PC and upload all the files (including index.html which will be your main page) to the public_html folder on math using an sftp client such as psftp.
