All students of SWE 432 should have an account on Zeus and Thor and should have a directory called hermes_web. Your username and password are the same as your GMU email account. Please check your account and contact me immediately if you do not have an account! More information is on the Frequently Asked Questions pages: http://labs.vse.gmu.edu/index.php/FAQ/.
Please do NOT ask the VSE systems staff for help learning PHP, debugging your program, or using ssh / sftp. Try to figure it out yourself and ask the instructor or the TA if you need help by posting to Piazza.
To deploy a PHP program on the Hermes cluster, you will need to do the following:
Once you have the VPN software installed on your computer, you can establish the link with your GMU mail username and password.
You can create a symbolic link (shortcut) to this directory from your home directory: ln -s /data/hermes_web/USERNAME public_html
For PHP examples, please see the examples on the class web server.
