For Higher Computing Science, it is important to have an understanding of client-side and server-side scripting. To do this, it is useful to have access to web server that can:
- Run PHP scripts
- Set up and use a mySQL database with PHP scripts
- Operate a search engine for the pages on your site
- Access your pages publicly from a subdomain of highercomputingscience.org
- Give access to other technologies and tools like SSH, SSL certificates, Access logs etc.
