Personal Home Pages’ New Home

Personal home pages, i.e. those hosted at www.personal.reading.ac.uk/~[username], have been moved to a new server.

This move required a switch from the Solaris to Linux operating systems and has affected pages in different ways:

  • Static HTML pages are unaffected by this.
  • PHP and Perl scripts need slightly different file permissions, namely global execute permissions on home and public_html directories.
  • More information setting the correct file permissions is available here.

Please also note that for security reasons it will no longer be possible to connect to the ITS MySQL database server from personal home pages.

If you have problems with your personal homepage, please contact ITS Help via the usual channels.
