I am working at a scool with roughly 30'000 users and am looking for solutions / ideas.
- a Webserver running on CentOS (Apache or Ngynx)
- each student should have their own htdocs accessable bei http://server/~username
- the users should be synced with Active Directory. User that are not existing anymore should be removed / archived. New users should have their htdoc ready with a skeleton. (automount?)
- the users should be able to access their htdocs through a windows share (CIFS) so they can edit their website
Has anyone experience in such a setup? I am sure many universities are having a similar configuration. I am not looking really in how to install it as this is the easiest part. But more some conceptional aspects. What to use? What works and what not? Maybe there are appliances that do that.
