Linux Command Line

Log into any lab machine in Linux and open a terminal, or access a Linux machine with SSH.

First, we must set the correct permissions on your home directory:

   chmod o+x /home/$(whoami)

If you do not already have one, create the public_html folder:

   mkdir /home/$(whoami)/public_html 

Finally, set the correct permissions for your public_html folder and its subfolders and files:

   chmod -R o+rX /home/$(whoami)/public_html

Accessing Student Web

To access the files in your public_html folder, open a web browser and navigate to http://sw.cs.wwu.edu/ and click on your username or go to http://sw.cs.wwu.edu/~username.
