how to create a web page on web server that will appear when pointing to the web in desktop machine

ng flag

Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS

I have 2 VMs, 1 is the web vm and 1 is the desktop vm. I have this requirement where I need to create a simple home page on the web server and show some simple information such as name and id. This web page should be accessible and content should appear once I point my desktop server's firebox to ''

I did the mounting where I use sudo mount --bind /webpool/doc /var/www and now I need to create a webpage and store inside /var/www so that I can access it with my desktop vm.

However, I cant simply do sudo pico xxx.html to create my webpage because that would mean that I need to point to /xxx.html, but in fact, the html web page should appear when I point to

Could anyone advise on this? Which directory should I save the html for it to appear straight when I open in Firefox

This seems like a homework assignment.

Hint: It's not about *where* to put xxx.html. It's about the correct filename for xxx.html.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
