The Apache PPWC environment
The Primary Purdue Web Cluster (PPWC) environment is a Linux-based system running Apache HTTPD 2.4 with PHP 5.4. 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:
- Python (v2.7 and v3.4)
Benefits of the PPWC Systems
- flexible web-based deploy tool
- “QA” tier to to mimic production environment for testing
- clustered production environment
