Q: How can I get more web publishing space on the MIT web servers?


If the locker for which you would like to request more space is an "org locker" (the path looks like /afs/athena/org/l/lockername/) and the space is being used for web publishing, contact MIT Service Desk. You may be able to have your disk quota increased free of charge.

There's a hard per-volume limit on disk quota (currently 25G) but most web projects do not need anything approaching this volume. We don't recommend trying to do streaming video content out of AFS/, so any request for greater than 6G will need us to understand the use case in some detail.
