University AFS-Hosted Website Addresses Updated

Thursday, August 12, 2021 - 09:41

 

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.
