The infrastructure of the University’s '''www.stanford.edu''' web hosting environment is different from those found in commercial web hosting providers. The combination of Webauth, AFS, Kerberos and OpenLDAP allows web developers to construct powerful, community-aware applications.

Introduction

The University’s www.stanford.edu web hosting environment is different from those of commercial web hosting providers. Supporting services like Webauth, AFS, Kerberos, and OpenLDAP allow web developers to construct powerful, community-aware applications on an open source platform, but there are special security-related requirements that can be challenging to work through. In an effort to make it easier and faster for web developers to create (or adapt) applications to work in Stanford’s web infrastructure, IT Services provides this “cookbook” of freshly-reviewed and up-to-date PHP “recipes” (scripts and/or modules, sample code, and documentation).

Please help us make these recipes as tasty (and correct) as possible: use the wiki “talk” pages (via the “Discussion” tabs) to make suggestions or comments.
