Transferring Files To and From your web space
SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol) is supported on this web server. In
addition to current versions of Dreamweaver, many free, downloadable
programs are available for this purpose. A few are listed below.
- Konqueror (use "fish://people.ku.edu/home/username")
- Nautilus (use "sftp://people.ku.edu/home/username")
- shell (use "scp -pr filename.html firstname.lastname@example.org:public_html")
Where do I put my files?
Once you're connected, look in your account for a directory
named "public_html". This directory holds all the files that are
accessible on the web. To publish a web page, simply upload it to the
"public_html" directory using your file transfer program.
You can create sub-directories and put as many files inside public_html as you
want, within the size limit of your account.
KU provides resources ranging from documentation and how-to guides to free
utilities that can help you add new functionality to your site with minimal
effort. Information on these
web resources can be found at
