cPanel - Overview
KU cPanel web hosting environment
The cPanel web hosting environment is where campus units are encouraged to develop customized web sites and applications that do not fit in the KU Content Management System (CMS). Request an cPanel account.
Uploading your website
You can upload or download from your website using any application that supports secure FTP (SFTP). Connection Information is as follows:
itprdcpanwb01.cc.ku.edu for unit.ku.edu
itprdcpansecwb01.cc.ku.edu for app.ku.edu (for secure data)
itprdcpanwpwb01.cc.ku.edu for blog.ku.edu
itprdcpandruwb01.cc.ku.edu for cm.ku.edu
All of your publicly viewable web files should be stored in the "public_html" folder. Your homepage should typically be called "index.shtml" (though this is configurable). Read the Dreamweaver specfic instructions.
Using PHP and MySQL
Both PHP and MySQL are enabled by default for accounts in this environment. PHP files can be run in any location on your account. MySQL can be setup and configured through cPanel. See the "Scripting and Databases" section for information regarding Shibboleth.
