Georgia Tech College of Computing
Research Community-Maintained Web Programming Server
Welcome to the Georgia Tech College of Computing Research Community-Maintained Web Programming Server, a cooperative initiative between CoC Researchers and the TSO Research Program Support Group. Basically, CoC Researchers manage the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) and related web technologies to provide a shared resource that services lightweight web programming needs. The idea is to reduce the number of LAMP servers in the College for very simple web programming projcts. This server is available to CoC Faculty, Staff and Students for research related work only. Volunteers install packages, software, manage the request line and troubleshoot software problems. TSO Research Program Support makes sure there's decent hardware and OS support, file backups and provide continuity for the Community.

Web Service Managers commit to offering a service to the CoC Research Community. Responsibilities include:
- Provide a simple web page describing your service, it's mission and how users can request service.
- Monitor and service email request lines
- Install/Upgrade service software, including security updates.
- Communicate with other Service Managers (e.g. collab-managers@cc) regarding status, updates of your service.
- Follow proper server etiquette. The server is shared by many Service Mangers.
