Self-Help: Accessing your Webspace

Accessing your Webspace

This tutorial applies to the following operating system(s):

Windows        Macintosh


The University is does not provide personal web space by default. However, faculty and staff can request web space by demonstrating an academic need or purpose. Once the request has been approved, employees may access sites using CIFS, SFTP, Dreamweaver and more.

Connect using File Explorer

The easiest way to upload and make changes to your webspace is using the File Explorer in Windows or Finder on an Apple machine. You can connect directly to the Shared drive and access your webpage's folder with ease.

If you are on a Windows machine, you can map the drives by opening the file explorer, right-clicking on this PC from the menu on the left, and then selecting map network drive... In the folder path, enter \\\shared

On a Mac, in the Finder, use the go menu to connect to server or simply press the keyboard shortcut command + k to bring up the window. Enter smb:// as the server address to connect.

This will map your shared drive to your machine. From here, simply navigate to it, then the webpages folder and then to the specific webpage you wish to edit. You can copy files to your webpage folder as you would any other files on your machine.

Connect using SFTP

For the tech-inclined, the webpages folder can be connected using SFPT clients such as FileZilla, WinSCP and others. The process is slightly more complicated and involves connecting to the Unix server before redirecting to the Webpages folder.

  1. Using your favorite SFTP program, connect to the server s with your NetID username and password.
  2. You will be loaded into your unix users drive. To access the webpages folder, you will need to change your directory path (called the remote site in FileZilla) from /users/*/*username (the default location when you connect to Unix) to /shared/webpages.
  3. This will connect you up to the webpages folder. In here, you will find a list of the webpages you have control over. Double-click the folder of the webpage you want to edit to open it and begin copying content over.

Connect using PuTTY/SSH

If text-based editors and SSH Shells are your game, ITS allows connection to the webpages folder using your favorite Shell client (terminal, PuTTY, SSH Secure Shell, etc).

Connect up to the unix server using your NetID username and password when prompted. If you are SSH-ing in using the Terminal, run the command ssh <username> to connect to the server.

Once connected, simply change directory by running the command cd /shared/webpages to jump to the webpages folder.

Connect using Dreamweaver

If you are creating your website in the Adobe Dreamweaver software, you can set up your managed site to be on your U of I server. This allows you to easily make changes, updates and publishing all from within the program.
