Webtest is a test server available to all Webserve account owners. It is intended as an environment for you to test and develop web sites and applications prior to moving them into production on Webserve.

Since this is a test environment, any issues that occur after hours will not be attended to until the next business day.

Requirements:

  • You must have an account on Webserve.
  • The account name and passphrase on Webtest will be the same as Webserve.
  • Ownership and contact information will be the same for both the Webserve and Webtest accounts.

  • Publishing to the streaming server (via the wwwdm directory) is unavailable.
  • E-commerce is unavailable.
  • Connections to the MySQL servers are available.
  • Search has been blocked via a robots.txt file.
