Cold Fusion Servers

  1. The Enterprise Hosting servers are running Cold Fusion MX 6.1.  Any Web site that will be moved onto these servers must be compatible with this version of Cold Fusion.
  2. All Cold Fusion pages must be tested thoroughly in a test environment before being moved onto a production server.  There will be no Cold Fusion development of any kind performed on any production servers.
  3. Microsoft Access databases will not be allowed on production Cold Fusion servers.  Web Hosting will provide a SQL database on a Microsoft SQL server if one is required for an application. 
  4. Verity Collections on Cold Fusion applications will not be permitted.  The Web Hosting Group encourages the use of the Enterprise Search Engine for users interested in implementing search capability.  For more information on the Enterprise Search Engine, contact webhosting@jhu.edu.
  5. Sandbox security is implemented on all Cold Fusion servers, and users are not permitted to use the following extensions:

    CfCollection, CfDirectory, CfExecute, CfFile, CfIndex, CfLog, CfObject, CfObjectCache, CfRegistry, CfSchedule, CfSearch, CreateObject, DirectoryExists, ExpandPath, FileExists
  6. The Web Hosting Group reserves the right to take any site offline without notice that appears to be preventing the server from operating smoothly.  Users will be notified of the problem, and a member of the Web Hosting Group will assist in the repair of the effected resource.

ASP.NET Pages (we no longer support Classic ASP web sites)

  1. The Enterprise Hosting servers support ASP.net.
  2. All ASP pages must be tested thoroughly in a test environment before being moved onto a production server.  There will be no ASP development of any kind performed on any production servers.
  3. Microsoft Access databases will not be allowed on production ASP servers.  Web Hosting will provide a SQL database on a Microsoft SQL server if one is required for an application. 

    ASP.net runs as an unprivileged account and Access databases will not work without extra configuration.  Therefore, please do not attempt to load an Access database using ASP.net.
  4. The Web Hosting Group reserves the right to take any site offline without notice that appears to be preventing the Server from operating smoothly.  Users will be notified of the problem, and a member of the Web Hosting Group will assist in the repair of the effected resource.
  5. All ASP.net applications must run in medium trust.

HTML Pages

  1. HTML pages generally do not cause problems with the smooth operation of a hosting server.  Users are permitted to develop and maintain HTML pages without involving a representative from Web Hosting.  However, using clean and appropriate HTML code is encouraged, and all pages should be tested before moving to the production server.

PHP and CGI

  1. PHP, Perl, of Shell Script functionality is available on the Enterprise Hosting servers and will be allotted based on the needs of a specific user.  While every effort is made to create a functional and useful server, no guarantee is made that a server will have every option and module compiled into the interpreter.  This is particularly true of PHP.
  2. Users are responsible for generating code that performs as required and that does not adversely affect other accounts on the server.

MySQL Databases

  1. If required, one MySQL database can be created for each account on Webhost5.
  2. The Webmaster for each site is responsible for maintaining the database once it has been created.  The Web Hosting Group does not support individual databases except to maintain a reliable and useful database engine.
  3. In the event that a poorly formed query causes an issue on the server, every effort will be made to find the owner of the code, after which time the offending code will be disabled.
