Learning Resources & Downloads
I am unable to access my pages folder via the web - the login screen will not accept my username and password.
Every time I ftp to the pages server, no public_html folder is present
New academic Unix accounts contain a public_html folder upon creation. However, if you have a Unix account that was not created recently, you may need to create the public_html folder. You can use the MKDIR command using SFTP. Most SFTP software programs include a menu item for making new folders or directories.
How do I connect to the academic unix server and transfer files into it?
You need to use an SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) program.
Windows: SSH, Mac: Fetch
