This is a draft of guidlines for our internal as well as our production web server http://www.dbai.tuwien.ac.at, which mirrors the internal one. As far as access privileges for documents are concerned, these refer to our internal server only.
http://www.dbai.tuwien.ac.at/SomeEntity/ThePages/one should link to
/staff/as opposed to
You can easily edit your web directories and pages on the internal
and access them with a browser at
In addition to
/web/htdocs/, a couple of ``shortcuts''
have been defined, that point to subdirectories of the tree rooted at
Every day, eight minutes after every even hour (i.e. 0:08, 2:08, ..., 22:08), the contents of the internal and external servers are synchronized such that the external becomes an exact mirror of the internal one. I.e., new files are transferred, modified files are updated and files that have been deleted on the internal server are deleted at the external server as well.

/staff/ contains a list of current staff members, including
e-mail address, office hours, phone extension and a link to a personal page
Please inform the webmasters about any new or leaving staff members as well as
any other changes of information listed there.
Each staff member can have a directory tree of her own under
/staff/. Normally the name of this directory will match the user
name, i.e. the pages of
enen will be reachable as
/staff/enen/. The user herself is the owner (in the UNIX sense)
of that directory and is entirely responsible for its contents. All of her
data, including images, should be stored there exclusively.
Simply drop email@example.com a note to have such a directory set up for you; please Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org on that message.
Transition note: Eventually all personal images should move from
/images to this personal webspace.
/proj/ contains a list of projects, both past ones (in case
those have been listed previously) and all current ones.
Furthermore, each project has a directory of its own under
/proj/PisNP/, which is referenced
from the general project page and contains more detailed information.
Usually a member of the project team is be the owner (in the UNIX sense) of
that directory, but upon request there is also the possibility to assign this
directory to some special, project specific group. In any case, the owner of
that directory serves as the main contact and is entirely responsible for its
/education/ contains a list of all our courses of
the current and the previous semester. For each course, a page with more
detailed information should be provided, either in the personal webspace of
the staff member that is responsible for that course (preferred) or as
A few weeks before the start of a new semester the webmasters will ask for updates and additions to this list, which should be completed before the semester actually starts.
/event/ is intended for conference pages, events
organized by our group, and similiar.
In general, please do not hesitate to contact us!
