Cascade Server can be used by any faculty, department or unit that has an official Western web site. Web pages can be published to both the corporate web server (http://www.uwo.ca/department name) or to a departmental web server. Free corporate web server space is available to any department on campus. If your department does not currently have web space set up on the corporate web server, you will need to obtain permission from your department chair to have this space set up.
To determine if you are eligible to use Cascade Server to maintain your web site, please submit at JIRA ticket at jira.uwo.ca.
