Part 4: Creating a public_html Folder and Setting Permissions

While you’re using Terminal, go ahead and set up your public_html folder. This folder will be used to store files to be published on your web site. At the $ prompt, type “mkdir public_html” and press the return key. This command creates your public_html folder. Now you need to change the permissions so that people can view your pages over the Internet. In order to change your permissions, at the $ prompt, type “chmod 755 public_html” and press the return key. You will learn more about how to create web pages later on in this tutorial.
