UHCL SCE DCM Server
The SCE DCM Server is where students host their course files, projects, and assignments for classes which require the use of a web hosting service. Web accounts are provided to students by their professors and are subject to deletion at the end of the semester.
Support for the DCM server is provided at http://sce.uhcl.edu/support/
Upgrades to DCM Server
Over spring break we have moved the DCM Server(dcmweb) to a new server. In order to provide students with the most current technologies we have upgraded all of the software. New software versions are:
- Microsoft Server 2008 R2
- SQL Server 2008 R2
- MySQL Server 5.5
- IIS 7.5
- PHP 5.3
- Perl 5.14
- Python 2.7.2
Files and Databases
Your files and databases have been moved to the new server.Your ftp addresses and file shares have been moved to the new server and you can access them in exactly the same way as you did before. Your databases have been replicated and now reside on the new DCM Server. Your login credentials are still the same.
The old DCM Server will still be online until the end of the semester. It has been renamed dcmweb-old.sce.uhcl.edu. If for some reason you cannot, or do not want to, use the new server for your class this semester, you will be able to access the old server until the end of the semester. There are a few things you need to keep in mind.
- Any changes you make on the dcmweb-old.sce.uhcl.edu server will not affect the new dcm server. When the machine is shut down at the end of the semester, any files and databases on it will be lost.
- To ftp, change dcm.uhcl.edu to dcmweb-old.sce.uhcl.edu in your ftp address
- To map a drive, change \\dcmweb to \\dcmweb-old in your share address.
- To use a MySQL or SQL Server database, use dcm-old.sce.uhcl.edu as the host name
