The addresses of personal websites hosted on the University’s Andrew File System (AFS) recently changed from www.pitt.edu/~username to sites.pitt.edu/~username (where username is the University username of the individual hosting the website).
Attempts to access AFS-hosted websites using the previous address format are being redirected automatically to the new address. Owners of AFS-hosted websites do not need to take any action, but are encouraged to use the new address in communications going forward.
AFS is a distributed file system that provides Pitt users with a limited amount of storage space and the ability to host a small website. Some students, faculty, and staff use AFS to publish a personal website, and some instructors use it to host a website for their class.
Please contact the 24/7 IT Help Desk at 412-624-HELP (4357) if you have any questions about this announcement.
