  • Departmental web sites may use PHP or MySQL but you are responsible for backup and restore of your own databases AND file content. See FastInfo 7420, 7416, and 7417 (File Management section) for more information. IT provides automatic file level backup for sites on the legacy "dept2" environment, but this environment is being phased out.
  • Each department is responsible for developing, backing up/restoring, debugging, and maintaining its web site content.
