IT Communication Servers

The Center for Knowledge Management (CKM) technical team administers several Web servers and MySQL database servers. These servers are available to VUMC departments and organizations for hosting their departmental Web sites, databases, and multimedia contents. The primary Web programming language supported on CKM servers is PHP, an excellent open source scripting language. With PHP and MySQL, users of CKM servers can create their own dynamic Web sites/applications using popular content management tools such as Drupal and Wordpress.
