The University's Interactive Unix Service (IUS) provides a UNIX facility for students and departments whose needs, in the areas of study, research, development and teaching, are not best served by the University's Microsoft based services.
The IUS also acts as a front-end to the other UNIX-based services provided by the University.
Hardware and Operating system
The IUS comprises 'One Big SUN' running Solaris 10.
A wide range of software is installed on the system.
Your web directory will be created in /home/www/YOUR DIRECTORY NUMBER/YOUR USERNAME/public_html/. You can also use the environment variable $WWWHOME/public_html/ to access it.
Depending on the way systems administrators set them up this may also work on other unix machines e.g. bromo. If not, you will need to use FTP or scp. FTP instructions are available on http://www.lancs.ac.uk/iss/services/ftp/ - connect to www.lancs.ac.uk
