cd ~/public_html

Add 'index.html' plus any additional web pages and images you wish to display in the 'public_html' directory. This can be done via sftp "Secure File Transfer Client" and connecting to wumpus.uow.edu.au. Make sure the file permissions are set to 644 for files and 755 for directories.
