Web Space

Every CAEDM account and group has a webspace.

CAEDM provides public webspace to all users and to all groups individually. The default group http URL is:

http://groupname.groups.et.byu.net/

And the default user http URL is:

http://www.et.byu.edu/~username/

Web content is modified in the 'www' directory, located in the root directory of the J Drive for users and in the root of the group directory for CAEDM groups.

Making Pages

The default page for webspace is the 'index.html' or 'index.php' file in the 'www' directory. If this file does not exist (it does not exist by default) you will get an error in trying to access the page.

Supported Modules

CAEDM Web servers support a number of modules, including:

  • PHP
  • Perl
  • Python
  • MySQL
  • LDAP
  • htaccess permissions
  • CAS login

Databases

If you have need of a database in your web implementation, that functionality is provided through MySQL.

Group vs. Personal Webspace

Using group webspace rather than personal webspace is suggested for the following reasons:

  • Access can be granted and removed from users or groups of users by the group owner.
  • Groups have more longevity. Groups can be passed from owner to owner as students and faculty graduate or leave the university.
