To create a web page, you need access to a browser and to
ACS. I have a
Macintosh where I can use Netscape and at the same time have a telnet
window open to ACS. Perhaps this won't be your exact setup but it is
ideal to be able to go quickly back and forth from the web to your ACS
How To Start and the Technical Stuff
On an X terminal in the basement of IT or in the library, I
would use one window to use Mosaic and I would have ACS still going in
the other window so that I can jump easily back and forth between the two
On a machine with no graphics capability, I will have my ACS account up
and running. I will look at the web by typing 'lynx' at the % prompt.
When I want to go back to ACS, I will quit out of lynx.
Now that you have one of the above arrangements, go to the ACS prompt
where it reads acs [jpatton]% and type 'mkdir
~/html' to create the
directory for your web page. To make this directory accessible to the
public, type 'chmod ugo+x ~/. ~/html' at the acs
The command 'chmod' stands for CHANGE MODE. The command we just entered
translates in English as CHANGE THE DIRECTORY SO THAT THE USER, GROUP
MEMBERS, AND OTHERS CAN EXECUTE THE HTML DIRECTORY.
Now we are ready to create our first page!
