The ability to "enroll" in a web service for UDrive files was removed almost a year ago. We were about to remove the web server when it was discovered that a couple users were still serving up actual files. This had not been noticed before because the web logs were inundated with errors generated by missing files that others were still pointing to, mostly shared MP3's.
The web service will run until the end of this semester but will be turned off on 5/11/2011. Files in your www folder will not be moved or changed.
The reasons the service is discontinued include:
- The module that redirects your www folder does not work with the current version of IIS (the web server).
- Many other, better, choices are available for providing web access to your private files, so it does not make sense to try to make the module work with the current version of IIS.
- The old server is on old hardware that is out of warranty and needs to be retired.
Instructors should move course content material to ANGEL where students are now accustomed to finding class materials.
