New accounts have public_html and cgi symlinks automatically created when both web and shell accounts have been activated. These accounts can also be viewed on the web within 15 minutes of their creation.

For users with older accounts, you can still see your personal web pages and CGI scripts at /web/users/$USER. If you prefer to access web files via public_html in your home directory, you can use symbolic links to reproduce this behaviour. The command makeweblinks will do the trick for you.

Instructions on activation are given in the section on web space and addresses
