CIASTech provides web hosting services for users on cias.rit.edu, and our server has a number of features, including:
- Ruby On Rails
- PERL (CGI)
- Shell access
- Per User Crontab
- No quotas (within reason!)
- phpMyAdmin Access
To access your web space, you can connect to cias.rit.edu with your favorite FTP client using your RIT computer account, or the username and password provided to you (if you have requested a special group account). For more detailed instructions, visit the File Services FAQ.
Every account also has a similarly named mySQL database created using the same username and password. Please take note when prompted for a mySQL server in your projects, you should point to cias.rit.edu and not localhost!
