From Web Services Wiki
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. But there are many unique characteristics and special requirements — especially related to security — that are unfamiliar to those who haven’t yet developed applications within it. IT Services provides this “cookbook” of freshly-reviewed and up-to-date PHP “recipes” (scripts and/or modules, sample code, and documentation) to make it easier to develop web applications that work well in Stanford’s web infrastructure.
Feel free to use the wiki “talk” pages (via the “Discussion” tabs) to make suggestions or comments.
