Host condor is a Linux system. It was Wesleyan's primary personal web server. Starting in Spring '07 we began to migrate users off of condor onot WesFiles.
For users still on condor:
The root of the home directory is not visible from the web. Files to be served out to the web must be stored in the public_html directory, for example in /home/username/public_html.. Use the following URL to view your pages developed on condor: http://username.web.wesleyan.edu. An overview of the web services available at Wesleyan is found at http://www.wesleyan.edu/its/web/. All users have access to CGI (common gateway interface), in the form of cgi-wrappers, for running programs that retrieve data from users or manipulate data according to different parameters. There is a cgi-bin/ directory in your public_html directory for this purpose. See http://www.wesleyan.edu/its/unix/cgiwrap.html for more information.
There is a scratch area on condor available to all user that can be used as a temporary holding space for very large files. To access this space, type "cd tmp" at the command prompt and you will enter your personal scratch directory. Note: all files older than 3 days will be removed from this area on a nightly basis.
If you encounter problems on condor please send an email about the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org .
