    accessing site within swgfl

    Hey Guys,

    Would anyone using a SWGFL (preferrably .devon.sch.uk) upstream be able to try out and confirm whether or not these 3x sites work for them?


    https://owa.southdartmoor.devon.sch.uk/owa
    http://vle.southdartmoor.devon.sch.uk/
    http://sandbox.southdartmoor.devon.sch.uk

    (all 3 should resolve to a 46.60.251.9x address and not respond to pings)

    SWGfL can't see anything immediately wrong, their DNS servers have the correct addresses in but the FQDNs for these 3 sites don't work.

    a box of sand?


    It's the name that was demanded for an internet-facing webserver for kids work. (Un)fortunately they don't seem to get taught properly about how websites work, so very few of them have index files.

    Do they each get their own area so that they can have individual indexs files? A Teacher here asked me something similar but I wasnt sure if it was possible as I am not too clued up on how websites work other than using wysiwyg editors.

    Our Y11's who are taking Dida have their own webserver with unique folders for them to test their work prior to the end of the course as they are all creating websites. Don't think the have worked out index files either

    Yep.

    We're using lighttpd because we couldn't get hold of anything that wouldn't fall over with Apache (probably some better config would've fixed it though).

    I can't remember which Edugeeker set it all up at BBS, but the how-to is all there on their site: FTP and Web server [Bishop Barrington IT Wiki]
