Major Changes to SLAC WWW

SLAC 6 Dec 1993

Version 2.12 of the CERN server code is presently running on SLACVM, on www.slac.stanford.edu (the Unix production server), and on the Unix test server. Another Unix test server is running version 1.0a5 of the NCSA server code.

The following browser versions are in production:

      Midas      -     version 2.0
      Mosaic     -     version 1.2 (version 2.0 is in test, but is
                         encountering some problems with AIX)
      Lynx       -     version 2-0-12
      TkWWW      -     version 0.8

The following HTML and related files were moved to the WWW production system as part of the November 19, 1993, installation:

    SLAC     HTML       [Previously TEST SLAC Home Page]
 
    AFS      HTML
    ANNALS   HTML
    CREATE   HTML
    CRUISE   HTML
    FUTURES  HTML
    GRABBAG  HTML
    HYPERTEX HTML
    INTERNET HTML
    LAN      HTML
    MACINTOS HTML
    MQ       HTML
    OLDSLAC  HTML
    SCS      HTML
    SECURITY HTML
    SLACFAC  HTML
    SLACINST HTML
    SLACVOID HTML
    SLACWIDE HTML
    UNIX     HTML
    WIZARDS  HTML
    WWWBIBL  HTML
    WWWINTRO HTML
    WWWSTAT  HTML
 
    HELP     INDEX
 
    WHEREIS  HTML
    WHEREISH HTML
    WHEREIS  INDEX
 
    FGET     EXEC
And temporarily in:
    /winters/pub/www/net/art.html, netfolks.html,
         networking.html, reference.html
 

With this installation the specification of a number of hypertext links has had to change (e.g., from the test UNIX port and server to the production ones (on www.slac.stanford.edu at the standard port 80).

N.B.: Contrary to installations on VM, installations to WorldWideWeb occur only to some parts at a time. Changes "roll" through the entire Web. That means that it may take some time for changes that affect one set of pages to migrate to all other pages that link to the changed set of pages (and their associated URL). Although we test many links, we cannot test them all. After a SLAC installation if you find a link to a changed page that fails, contact the owner of the page that contains the failing link.

Or send comments or problems to me (winters@SLAC.Stanford.EDU) or Louise Addis (addis@SLAC.Stanford.EDU).

If you need to get to the Old SLAC Home Page, press here, and let me know what's missing. If you're willing to take a risk, try the Test SLAC Home Page (if any) and its links, and let me know any comments.
