Web server upgrade – step 1

Update 10:15 – migration done, please let us know if you experience any problems.

After 11(!) years of loyal service, the current D-PHYS web server hardware will be retired in 2019 and all web sites hosted by ISG will migrate to new hardware. We will take the opportunity to reorganize the way we host web sites and improve the general setup of the web server.

In a first step, we will migrate the ‘personal’ web sites (those residing in public_html/ in a home directory or group share) on Wednesday, 17.7.2019. We have extensively tested the new setup, and unless you’re using dynamic content in your public_html folder (like PHP or other CGI scripts), you should not notice anything. With CGIs, there’s a slight chance we might have overlooked something, so please test your dynamic content after that date and get in touch if you see a problem.

The regular web sites hosted by us will be successively moved to the new hardware at a later time and we will get in touch with their owners should it be necessary.

Note that this will not affect the department website in any way as that one is hosted on the CMS of Informatikdienste.
