posted on August 18, 2004

On June 30, 2004, Academic Services and Emerging Technologies (ASET), a unit of Information Technology Services (ITS), announced Phase I of its Dynamic Web Application Engines service (see below), which introduced the PHP application engine. On August 24, ASET will continue this rollout with Phase II updates. The updates include:

  • an upgrade from PHP version 4.x to PHP version 5.x;
  • files ending in .php on,, and will be automatically redirected to the corresponding URL on (as of August 25);
  • SQLite database support will be introduced as part of PHP 5.x; and,

At this time, a fully-featured database service is not provided; however, one is planned for a later release. Developers and Web content providers are welcome to use independently-operated database servers. Additionally, because of the way PHP is implemented in this service, developers should not use this for sensitive or confidential data.

University to expand digital storage resources
Wednesday, April 20, 2005

University Park, Pa. -- This fall, Penn State Information Technology Services (ITS) plans to double the amount of digital storage space available to University community members, by providing a gigabyte (or 1,000 megabytes) of space for course work, research, Web projects, portfolios, graphics, photos and more.

The University's network storage system, known as Penn State Access Account Storage Space (PASS), is provided to all computer users when they sign up for Penn State's e-mail service and can be used for a variety of Internet needs including storing Penn State Portal preferences or storing Penn State Web Mail mailboxes and attachments.

According to Kevin Morooney, senior director of ITS Academic Services and Emerging Technologies, the upcoming boost to PASS will enable individuals to personally add space to their accounts in 100 Megabyte increments up to a full gigabyte, providing considerably more space for students, faculty and staff to securely store and manage research materials and Web resources.

Currently Penn State community members each have 500 megabytes of space, but with the upcoming PASS expansion, each individual's space can be increased up to 100 percent beginning on the first day of fall semester classes.

In addition to the recent increase, other standard Web storage features will continue to be offered to Penn State Access Account users through the University's PASS storage system. For example students, faculty and staff can choose to add an additional 10 megabytes to their storage space by applying for Personal Web Space at and instructors can receive up to 50 megabytes of Web space for their instructional development interests via the Course Online Account system (COLA). Faculty members also can request 10 megabytes of Web space for each of their students to use for course assignments through the Student Online Development Account system (SODA).
