The Basics

  1. How soon will my space be available after I sign up?
  2. Is there a way to give multiple people administrator access to a group page on the people.bu.edu server?
  3. Can I restrict access to my pages?
  4. How much space do I get?
  5. How do I determine how much disk space I’ve used in my people.bu.edu site?
  6. Can I apply for more space?
  7. How do I remove files from my directory?
  8. Is my site backed up?
  9. My status changed recently from student to staff. What do I do to get my name listed in the staff index?
  10. How long does my people.bu.edu site remain active?
  11. Can you migrate my site from people.bu.edu to blogs.bu.edu?

Building/Design

  1. Can I use a hit counter for my people.bu.edu site?
  2. Can I create a search page or search box for my site on people.bu.edu?
  3. Does the server support redirects?
  4. Where can I learn HTML?
  5. Can I install my own CGIs on people.bu.edu?
  6. Do you have PHP installed on the people.bu.edu server?
  7. My student group would like to use PHP scripting on our website. Can we do this on blogs.bu.edu or people.bu.edu?
  8. How do I publish to people.bu.edu using iWeb?

Troubleshooting

  1. When I try to connect to webdev.bu.edu or people.bu.edu using Dreamweaver MX 2004, I receive the error message “Dreamweaver cannot determine the remote server time.”
  2. I’m listed on a people.bu.edu index page, as I requested. But in my web address (URL), instead of my name, a number shows up. Why?
  3. I uploaded my files to the server, but they are not showing up on the Web. What’s wrong?
  4. Why are links in my pages pointing to example pages in a different directory?
  5. Why is there a disclaimer link at the bottom of all my pages?
  6. Why am I getting two disclaimers on my page?
  7. If the administrator for a group page on people.bu.edu is no longer available and they did not pass on the password, can I have the administrator access to this web site changed without wiping out the site?
  8. My form on people.bu.edu was working fine until I downloaded and uploaded (or edited) the guestbook or datafile. Now I get a message indicating the form can’t write to one of those files when I submit the form. What’s wrong?
  9. I’ve graduated from BU, but my web page on the people.bu.edu server is still active. How do I get it removed?
