Web Site Databases

The alphabetical list of databases, subject list of databases, and ezProxy configuration file all depend upon a "database of databases." Actually, the records in this database contain fields to support the needs of the scripts which create the above displays and files.

A Note on Scripts

The scripts are written in the Python language preferentially if formatting maintenance is of less concern than functionality or if snappy performance is needed. In most cases efficient performance is preferential to the use of source-level scripting. Python scripts support CGI, and are developed on the server. PHP scripts are much wordier and are embedded within XHTML (HTML) pages maintained with Dreamweaver. Python scripts are maintained in a character-based text editor such as vi or emacs.

Both of these programming languages have support within modules of the Apache web server.

Database and Tables

Log in to the graphical user interface

  • Enter http://library.csu.edu:xxxxxx (where xxxxxx is the port for the Webmin® interface. This number is kept with the password list for library resources in the secure area.)
  • Current user = root and password=pppppp (where pppppp is the password for the Webmin® user. This number is kept with the password list for library resources in the secure area.)
