This is a third notice to all web maintainers that IUP’s old Central Web Server, also known as the “blue and yellow” server, will be shut down on July 1, 2010, as it is no longer needed as part of IUP’s web presence.
It is important for web maintainers to understand that the shutdown of the Central Server will not affect your unit’s web presence, as all websites have been migrated to Ektron, our new content management system (CMS).
This shutdown also does not affect webpages on www.people.iup.edu.
For these reasons, for most web maintainers, the shutdown of the Central Server will be a nonevent.
However, if you have additional, non-website documents on the Central Server that you wish to preserve, you must back them up to another drive, or to a CD- or DVD-ROM, before July 1.
Why would you have documents or pages on the Central Server that were not transferred to the CMS? During migration, only pages and documents that were accessible to the public were transferred to the new website. That is, if there was no link to it, it was not an active part of your website and was not transferred.
For instance, if you had a folder of Word documents on the Central Server but no links to those documents on your website, they have not been migrated. If you wish to retain copies of these documents, you must back them up to another drive, or to a CD- or DVD-ROM, before July 1.
