It will... • create a public_html folder that will store all web pages and images you want people to be able to access • set permissions for this folder so that anyone can view the contents of the folder, but only you can save files to this folder • insert a dummy web page called home.html in the new public_html folder that you can use as a sample

Your “dummy” webpage Access the dummy page at http://pegasus.cc.ucf.edu/~yourNID This is your homepage address
