Vhosts: Benefits and Guidelines
Benefits and rules regarding the creation of vhosts.
Vhosts are a way to obtain a website within the College of Engineering server that will be supported by the CAE and completely free of charge. There are many reasons that this is a preferable alternative to hosting websites on an external site:
- Easy to create - once you have permission you can create virtual hosts yourself via My Account!
- Easy to modify - map the virtual host as a drive letter in Windows!
- Easy to specify who can edit your virtual host.
- Secure - No worrying about having to patch and secure a machine
- No quotas - (but please keep it reasonable)
- MySQL - Create and maintain your CAE mysql database with phpmyadmin!
