The Apache PPWC environment

The Primary Purdue Web Cluster (PPWC) environment is a Linux-based system running Apache HTTPD 2.2 with PHP 5.1. The production environment is clustered to minimize downtimes and there is a QA (quality assurance) environment to facilitate testing of site changes before they are migrated to production. There is a web-based deploy tool to provide more flexibility and control (you can easily deploy a partial site if you choose) as well as immediate feedback (your site is fully deployed before your web browser shows you a status page.)

Supported web development languages:

  • PHP
  • Perl

Benefits of the PPWC Systems

  • flexible web-based deploy tool
  • “QA” tier to to mimicĀ  production environment for testing
  • clustered production environment
