Getting A Web Page At CERN

Using the following instructions, you can setup a web page from your /afs/cern/ directory.

  1. mkdir the directories ~username/public/www and ~username/public/www/internal.
  2. Eventually I will provide an .htaccess file that you will put in your ~username/public/www/internal directory to make sure you elog is only viewable by CMS members.
  3. Start at http://webservices.web.cern.ch/webservices/Default.aspx
  4. Click on Create a new web site
  5. Choose AFS folder (I chose /afs/cern.ch/user/u/username/public/www/ and fill out the rest of the form (where u/username should be replace by whatever is appropriate).

After filling out the form resulted in http://cern.ch/username accessing the directory ~username/public/www/.

Attempt to debug why my cern webpage is not accessible

url: http://cern.ch/kalanand
afs directory:/afs/cern.ch/user/k/kalanand/public/www/

I cannot figure out why the webpage is not accessible. I checked all permissions and tried every debugging tool I know. Even the CERN help-desk seems to have no clue.

Today Charles Plager did some debugging of my permissions. Here is what he reports.
cplager@lxplus247> fs listacl www
Access list for www is
Normal rights:
  system:administrators rlidwka
  system:anyuser rl
  cplager rlidwka

cplager@lxplus247> fs listacl www
Access list for www is
Normal rights:
  webserver:afs rl
  system:administrators rlidwka
  system:anyuser rl
  kalanand rlidwka

I believe only difference is
chmod 755 www 
Even correcting this difference doesn't get my webpage accessible :( Well, I give up on you CERN.
