Important ITSS Web Server Upgrade News

| 1 Comment

If you have web pages that utilize CGI it is very important that you test them before October 31, 2011.

ITSS is replacing our existing web server (www.d.umn.edu) with newer hardware and software. A Web Server Upgrade guide has been prepared that will help you prepare for the changes that will happen on Monday, October 31, at 6AM. If your web sites do not use CGI (PHP, Perl, C, C++, etc) or data base systems, it is very likely no changes will need to be made to your web sites. If you do use CGI components or use data bases then it's important that you test ahead of time and be prepared to update your web pages on October 31.

For more details please visit Web Server Upgrade.

If you have questions please contact Dan Burrows at 8846 or via email at dburrows@d.umn.edu.

Web forms that use the GenericMail.cgi to handle the form submission will be just fine.

Search forms using the htDig search tool will need to be changed to use the Google search or some other search method. To change your forms to use the Google search, see this page: http://www.d.umn.edu/itss/webdev/guide/create.html#search-box
