Drupal is OSU's solution to website hosting. CWS uses custom themes created for OSU to build websites and we even help manage the content.
The majority of Drupal services are free for OSU departments and organizations. Included are:
* Special address naming like food.oregonstate.edu costs extra. Some features may need to be developed for a fee, particularly if a feature is developed solely for your site and not shared with the OSU Drupal community. Please contact us with any questions.
CWS offers hands on classes for staff, faculty and students working on OSU websites. This is the perfect opportunity to learn more about Drupal and ask questions.
We will verify all requests for new OSU websites with the appropriate authority, so please inform them of your request beforehand. Additional guidance is available on the site request form.
You've been working on your Drupal development website and you think you're now ready to make it your new website. What do you need to do now?
Once you know the answers to these questions, you can submit your request to us using a Help Ticket request. Please be sure to include your development website URL so we know which site you are working with.
Once your site is scheduled, do not work on your development site after 9am on the day it is moving.
Right after your site is pushed live, you should review it for errors. Here is a list of items to review on your new website.
After you've checked your site, there are a few more items to keep in mind
You will be given the location to edit your site once it's live. You'll still be able to edit existing content and add new content as well while your site is live.
If there are any issues that you think are the result of the move, please let us know.
