- Technology


SPIDER has been built on Linux, making use of the Apache web server, mySQL databse and the PHP scripting language. These are all well tested, widely used open source technologies that provide a fast, efficient platform for running SPIDER, and enable rapid development of the system to meet the needs of the users


SPIDER has 2 main components - firstly the PHP scripts & web pages that are used to display the site, and second, the mySQL database behind it that stores all the data, and allows the site to appear to each user using their personal, customised settings.
