By using project web server, you can build and start a website that provides project information and support. Each project is provided with a domain and can create a dynamic website with the use of CGI.
Project web server is provided though the use of virtual host. Each project is given a domain that looks like “<project name>.osdn.jp”, and the URL to access the project web site will look like “http://<project name>.osdn.jp”. It also supports https, therefore, you could also use URL that looks like “http://<project name>.osdn.jp” for the access.
On project web server, you could not only statically release documents that include HTML files, but also create dynamic website with the use of CGI. For CGI, all kinds of languages such as Perl, PHP, Ruby, and Python are available. Also, you can access the MySQL data base provided by OSDN.
Management and building of a project web server are done on shell server (shell.osdn.net). On project web server, the following directories of the shell server will be released.
|Directories that will be released
|Shell Server Directory
|/home/groups/<the first letter of the project Unix name>/<the first and the second letters of the project UNIX name>/<project UNIX name>/htdocs/
|/home/groups/<the first letter of the project Unix name>/<the first and the second letters of the project UNIX name>/<project UNIX name>/cgi-bin/
Even without much knowledge of shell, you can build your project's website by simply uploading files on these directories with the use of client such as SFTP.
There are simple html files available to be used for project web pages when creating a new project. You can use these as the base to create web pages, or you could certainly create a new website. Use the resources the way you want to perfect your project website.
(The html file located at the top is actually a symbolic link of which the content can not be changed due to authority related reason. If you wish to create a web page using this file, copy it before making a use of it. Symbolic link itself is erasable.)
You can use the following features on project web server.
The following acts are prohibited on project web server.
Furthermore, when a user is detected of evading system security or access limitations, or taking a part in or attempting network intrusion or DOS attack, he/she may face prosecution. OSDN will cooperate with the law enforcement with their investigation into such acts. If you have any questions about what is allowed and what is not, please ask us.
