Introduction to UNIX for Web Developers Creating Directories Unlike files which can be created by UNIX when you specify something for them, directories must be specifically created. When you want to create a directory, you will typically use the "mkdir" utility. The syntax is simple:

mkdir -options directory_list

Options Description
-m mode Specifies the initial permissions
-p Makes all non-existent children specified in the filename. For example, "mkdir -p public_html/News" would make both "public_html" and its sub- directory "News".

Check out the following example
