Unix Services

Unix Web Services

ITD Unix Services maintains multiple web servers, web sites and applications on the Linux platform.  These servers leverage the flexibility of the Apache 2.2 web server, various scripting languages (such as PHP and CGI/Perl), and the security of the Linux Operating System environment to provide a stable and secure web hosting platform to the Laboratory community.

The Apache web server allows ITD to host many websites on a single platform, reducing hardware needs and administrative load.  The servers maintained by ITD Unix Services have three different sets of applications:
