The web server on pubpages.unh.edu is provided for the
benefit of individual CIS Unix users at UNH to compose their
own home pages. The underlying hardware is a Dell PowerEdge
M610 system running four Intel quad-core Xeon 5570 series
processors, with 24 GBytes of memory. We're running version
2.2.15 of the Apache web server software under version 6 of
Red Hat's Enterprise Linux distribution.
The pubpages server was moved to this new host on June
This page contains a hodgepodge of pointers to web server
documentation and examples of things you can use on your own
pages (assuming you have a CIS Unix account here).
- The documentation for the Apache
web server software.
- How to set up your
own website on the Pubpages server.
How to remove your website from the Pubpages server.
- A list of UNH local users with home
- Our current statistics report (from the webalizer software)
is here. It contains data for the
current month, and up to eleven months previous to the current
month. (The current Pubpages server has been in production
since June 27, 2011.)
- A list of icons from
this server which you can use on your own pages (like this:
- Users can include Java applets on their pages; here's
should work for you may work for you if your
browser allows it.
- Users can password-protect a section of their Web
documents from unauthorized off-campus snoopers. For
example, you can break into this secret
web page only if you know the secret code: the username
is the first name of Dilbert's creator, the password is his
last name, both in lowercase. (Please note that this
doesn't prevent potentially thousands of local users from
browsing your "secret" page. We're all one big happy family
here, but ...)
CGI Information: I get a lot of
questions about CGI scripts.
- Please see the Security Tips
section of the Apache manual for the reason we don't
allow users to install their own CGIs (specifically,
see the section on "Non Script Aliased CGI").
- Although the pubpages server disallows users from
running CGI programs from their own directories, they
can request that I review and (if acceptable) install
one; as an example, here's a fortune cookie program called
from the cgi-bin directory on the server.
- You might just want to have a form on your web page
which can be filled out and the results mailed to you.
We've installed the cgiemail
CGI script for that purpose. Here's an example.
- Users who wish to set up their own home page might want
to review relevant sections of the CIS Unix
Systems Acceptable Use Policy.
