The Homework Server is a true Web hosting platform which provides the student a realistic Web environment for project testing and turn-in while preventing other students from stealing their code. The Homework Server is a comprehensive environment based on freely available software. It is scripted in PHP/XHTML, integrates easily with university systems using IMAP authentication, and requires very little maintenance since most routine tasks are automated. The server described supports student applications that use XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP5, and MySQL.
