Server configuration notes

Every shell user automatically also gets:

  1. A place for WWW files: just place your files within ~/public_html/, and they will be visible under as well as (secure https).

    Permissions notes: for privacy, the default permissions prevent everyone, even Apache (user and group www-data), from reading the files in your home directory. To make ~/public_html/ work, you have to explicitly make it world-readable. Usually what you need to do are these 2 simple commands:

    chmod    o+rX ~
    chmod -R o+rX ~/public_html/
  2. Each account is also automatically an email account (, as usual on Unix servers. Yes, smtp works, so you can send and receive mails on this address. Although no pop3 is configured, so you just have to login to check your emails. I advice to set ~/.forward file to forward mails to your "normal" email account. Go to for a real email account associated with our ii :)
