Library & Technology Services,
This is people.brandeis.edu, formerly known as www.unet.brandeis.edu.
If you're looking for a particular person's home page, try a
Here is a list of all [mostly] student club home pages on this server. Here is where you manage student groups and here's the ClubCenter listings.
If you are a spam robot looking to collect email addresses for spamming,
please follow the links in our addresses directory
and kickme directory.
Please consider using Google Sites for your website hosting and content management. Many users will find this easier than coding their own HTML/PHP.
- You can request to have a CNAME or a URL redirect on the brandeis.edu doman. See Mapping your site.
Users may publish home pages on this server by placing world-readable
files in their WWW directory.
The URL of all pages is http://people.brandeis.edu/~username/
Features we can never support on a server with 8,000 users, so don't bother asking:
- Soupermail, a
full-featured web-to-email script, is installed
at /cgi-bin/soupermail.pl. See the bboard for soupermail usage hints.
- You can restrict access to files with standard Apache directives. Here is some help creating the proper password files; the only change is that the AuthUserFile path should start at /usr/users/your_username/WWW/ rather than /u1/www. However, since all files are readable by any UNet user, restricting them at the web server level doesn't mean much. Look at file-storage on my.brandeis.edu. for an alternative.
- You can also protect access using CoSign, the login system used with Webmail and LATTE. See the instructions here.
- This server has been built with PHP 4,
including LDAP support.
Files ending in .php will be processed.
To protect the system from poorly written scripts, all filesystems
are mounted read-only and certain dangerous shell commands are disabled.
If you want
to save input, you need to do it through email. You can do something like
mail("firstname.lastname@example.org",$subject,$body,"X-Originating-IP: " . GetEnv("REMOTE_ADDR"))
