This website has been created to support faculty and staff who use the MTweb server.
MTweb is MTSU’s newest webserver using a Windows server operating system. All MTSU websites that are not using the LCMS will eventually be housed on this server rather than on MTSU’s UNIX server or the frank server. Previously, an article appeared in the Communicator introducing MTSU faculty and staff to our new MTmedia server. These servers have two different purposes. MTweb will house websites and MTmedia will house large video and audio files. These two servers can be used together to create a website. The web pages, images, and smaller media files will be housed on MTweb and the large video and audio files will be housed on MTmedia and linked to from the web pages on MTweb. MTSU faculty and staff may use any program they would like to create websites on the MTweb server. The use of Expression web and Dreamweaver are supported by the Faculty Instructional Technology Center but any program can be used and the resulting files can be copied to the server via a Network folder.
To Request an account on MTweb contact Brenda Kerr, 615-904-8191 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Each person who has been given access to an account on the MTweb server will login with their personal fsa username and password in the following format.
Note: The username configuration has “fsa\” in front of it.
(This is the username you use to access your MTSU computer)
password: type in your fsa password
(The password you use to access your MTSU computer)
Using Dynamic Web Templates to create the visual look and layout for your site saves time. If the template is applied to all pages in the site and the site owner decides to modify the template all pages attached to that template are also updated. Multiple templates can be used on a website. An Expression web compatible MTSU template and a Dreamweaver compatible template have been developed by one of MTSU’s web designers and is downloadable via the links below.
Faculty and staff may have the need to collect user data for research, course projects, conferences, and many other uses using forms. ITD supports the following methods of collecting data on MTweb and UNIX campus servers.
Entire websites and specific folders in websites can be password protected contact Brenda Kerr, 904-8191 to request this feature.
MTSU supports the use of
to create database driven websites. PHPRunner builds web interfaces
for any local or remote MySQL, MS Access, SQL Server and Oracle
databases. It builds pages that allow site visitors to easily
search, add, edit, delete and export data in your database. Visitors
can search and filter records and then export the data or view a
printer friendly form of the data. Security options can be set on
the database to restrict access and ability to view and edit data
according to role assigned.
Contact Brenda Kerr if you would like to set up an online database of resources or if you have a form on your site that needs to append a database with each new submission.
