Science Computing Services manages the Science Division Web Server, an Apache web server running on the
Science UNIX host (the host is called sci250.sci.ccny.cuny.edu).
Most of the official Science Division web pages are on this server. The Division of Science web site
is: www.sci.ccny.cuny.edu. Science Computing Services staff maintain some
of the 'official' pages, and some are maintained
by other faculty and staff in the Science Division.
Anyone with an account on the UNIX host can create their own
'individual' web site; it will
have the address:
www.sci.ccny.cuny.edu/~accountname. To create your web site, in your home
directory create a
subdirectory called public_html, and then create, copy, or upload web
pages and other appropriate files.
The name of the default 'start page' is index.html.
These 'personal' web pages are an easy way
to create a web presence for you and/or your research lab, or to support
your teaching activities. Note that these pages are housed on
an official College Science Division web server, with a College web
they must be non-commercial in nature, and should be consistent with the
goals and mission.
We can provide some 'getting-started' guidance for those developing web
pages; please contact Science
Computing Services for an appointment.
Interactive web pages: Adding interactvity with Perl or PHP is supported on the Science Division Web
Server. CGI scripts must be submitted in advance and approved by Science Computing Services; to ensure
compliance with this, CGI scripts will only run from a restricted directory location. Any attempt to
avoid this requirement may result in termination of accounts and/or other
