Technologies supported on the Personal Web Server (www2)

General Information

Xenon is a Linux machine running the Apache web server.

NOTE: Xenon has reached end of life support and will be decomissioned after the end of the Spring 2012 semester. A notice has been emailed out to University members with more information. WordPress websites are available for Faculty. WordPress will have several significant advantages over the current Xenon platform. Students can currently move their web content to Google Sites. Students that have academic programming assigments will be able to perform their work on the Math and CS departmental server.
