You have to make them yourself - there is no automatic command...

- index.html is a plain HTML file. It can contain anything you like. This is not the place
to learn to write HTML, but there are hundreds of books and webpages on the subject.

- .htaccess is a mechanism for adding directives to apache which apply in a specific directory.
It is a complement to the apache config since anything you put in a .htaccess can also go
in the main config file.

I suspect you have a precise application in mind but are a little uncertain of how to implement.
Perhaps if you post a description of what you want users to be able to do on your site, we
will be able to advise on the best way to do it.
