Web and Database Server Management

Installation, configuration and maintenance of Web Servers that host departmental websites as well as the UKZN main website are undertaken by Technical Services. Both the Windows platform and the Linux AMP (Apache, MySQL and PHP) platform are catered for.  Some websites are open to the public from outside UKZN and some are access controlled and are accessible only via authentication.

As more and more departments incorporate databases as part of their websites, the maintenance and management of these databases also fall within the ambit of Technical Services.  Both MS-SQL and MySQL are catered for.
