All Web Guide procedures
Procedure indicates a systematic sequence of events needed to carry out a task. It may be a formal procedure that is officially recognized at FAO.
2.3c Clearance of Web sites by OCP
2.4b The fao.org domain, subdomains and root directories
Please see the document Internet domain name selection, registration and organization: policies and procedures [internal].
3.2 Define the Web site subject scope
At the planning phase of a new or (to be) redesigned Web site, write a description of its subject area/scope.
6.1a How to use the FTP server
FTP had been used in the past for distribution of large binary files to help avoid tying up resources on our main HTTP servers. There was a risk that this could happen for transfers lasting a long time - and so prejudicing the quality of the service offered. Nowadays, the HTTP servers are more powerful and due to the increase in bandwidths available to many users, even for large downloads, this is no longer an issue. Therefore much of the incentive for using FTP has been removed. In addition to this, particular problems have been identified which can sometimes hinder publishing of information by FTP instead of HTTP. These include:
6.9 Providing access to search
To help you determine which search engine is the most appropriate for your Web site, you can contact OCP or CIO. In consultation, OCP and CIO will evaluate your needs and where costs are involved; provide an estimate and a timeline. Support at any stage is always available from OCP and CIO.
7.2 How to use the test environment
The tool you have used to construct your Web site will determine how you access the test environment.
Placing files in the one of the test servers, enables a user to see how the Web site will perform once copied live. For example, the URL for Web site files placed on the faoint0b server begins with "http://www-data".
The Information Technology Division (CIO) manages and monitors FAO test environments.
9.2 Update procedures for Web sites
Once a Web site is published, pages will inevitably need to be updated as time progresses. To have updated static pages from the test server (Faoint0b) published live, write to Web-Intranet-Updates@fao.org specifying the name of the Web site and the server, the name of the files etc.
