Web Shutdown Run
On June 13, 2008 the following appeared on the WEBPUBS-L listserv:
During this week, a little over a thousand old WWW accounts were removed from the system. This means that some web sites that were hosted within the personal web space of these accounts (aka www.uky.edu/~userid/
web sites) have been archived and removed. You may want to double- check your sites for any broken links.
In addition, roughly 40,000 files and directories within our main hosting directory (aka files within /www/htdocs) were "abandoned" by deleted users. These files have been reassigned ownership to the system user, and will be evaluated in the coming weeks. The Webmaster team will be sending out email notices to campus and departments that have abandoned web sites, files or folders on WWW.
If the shutdown run accidentally removed your WWW userid, don't panic!
Your files within your WWW user directory structure have been archived, and can be restored. (No files within the /www/htdocs directory were deleted.) Please contact us (email@example.com) immediately, and we will work with you and the IT CSC to get your account back.
The long forthcoming WWW system upgrade will be coming sooner than later. Documentation on the upgrade will be provided soon. If you have any early questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
