(available in German, French, Spanish and Japanese, but only partly in English).
- For stability reasons no central FileSystems are accessible from the web server.

You may also put shell, perl or python scripts or even binary executables inside your
. These scripts will be executed by the web server as long as they have a
extension and have proper permissions i.e. file and the containing directory must be writable to the owner exclusively.
The scripts will be executed with the privileges of the account they belong to. There's a 5 minute limit on the total CPU usage for each script (as we had some nasty infinite loops in the past).

Restricting HTTP access to your web-docs
You can restrict the access to your web-docs via

To limit the access to your web-docs to GSI machines put this into your
Allow from .gsi.de

Add authentication to your web-docs
Put this in our

. You'll be prompted for the password.
