UCC members with accounts can easily host their own websites from the UCC.

Newer members will note that they have a directory called "public-html" in their home directory, which contains a simple index page. You are free to change this and create your own website. For older members, the following command sequence will create a directory "public-html" in your home directory that you can host files in. You should note that it's public-html, not public_html as is common on most systems.

cd ~
mkdir public-html
chmod 755 public-html

Your new website will be available at:

  • https://username.ucc.asn.au/ or
  • http://www.ucc.gu.uwa.edu.au/~username/

There is a so called "list" of members' websites, so if you end up doing something with your web space it would be great if you could send an email to the webmasters

If you add files to your directory then you will need to set the permissions on them if you want them publically available. To learn how to set permissions type:

man chmod at the prompt.

A search engines index our site frequently, you can perform searches over at the search page.

For those who want to know, yes we do have mod_rewrite enabled
