Personal Home Page

Do you want to put some material publicly available, or send a file which is larger than 2 MB? Create a ~/public_html/ directory:

 mkdir ~/public_html/

Set the permissions correctly:

 chmod a+x ~
 chmod a+rx ~/public_html

Then copy your file to this directory:

 cp file.pdf ~/public_html/

and check its permissions

 chmod a+rX -R ~/public_html

Now the address of your file is If there is no index file in the directory, it may be a good idea to create at least an empty one:

 touch ~/public_html/index.html

This forces address to point to address If the index file is not present, file listing is shown instead.
