Welcome to the PHP and mySQL server
This server is configured to recognize and execute PHP scripts, or files ending in .php.
This server has also been configured to automatically execute files named index.php in any directory.
AU Departments have the option to request web space on the OIT Windows web server, where ASP and .NET are available and to use databases on the SQL server. Microsoft Expression Web and Visual Studio software are available free through the Microsoft Campus Agreement. For more information about the Windows web development environment, please see https://fp.auburn.edu. (OIT does not provide Windows web server space for student organizations.)
PHP is the recommended scripting language for student web applications on the Auburn University Sun server (Mallard).
mySQL is an open source relational database system. The SQL part of MySQL stands for Structured Query Language, the most common standardized language used to access databases. PHP can be used to read and write to mySQL databases on Mallard web pages.
