Hosting Custom Content on the My sCool Server

Can we host any additional offline content on the server?

Yes, it can be done via the mssadmin account. Just upload the content to the /var/www/html/mss/custom folder.

Any other user can host their content by putting the content in /home/username/public_html.

The former can be accessed via https://server/ and the later via https://server/~username/ from a browser on any system connected on the LAN.

For detailed step-by-step instructions, refer to the Content Platform section in the user manual. Familiarity with web server administration concepts is recommended to be able to fully exploit this feature.
