For the university web server (Webserve), what address should I use when making an SSH or SFTP connection to my account?

Important:
On Webserve, PHP 7.1 will become the default version in spring 2018; however, PHP 5.6 will still be available until it is retired at the end of December 2018. As of Jan 18, Webtest servers are already using PHP 7.1. For help specifying which version of PHP to use, see PHP server-side scripting language.

To upload files to or download files from your web account, use the following address:

  webserve.iu.edu

Webserve is the central web server for Indiana University Bloomington, IUPUI, IU Northwest, and IU Kokomo. Although you view your pages at www.indiana.edu, www.iupui.edu, www.iun.edu, www.iuk.edu, or www.iue.edu, Webserve handles all SSH and SFTP connections to the web server.

Alternatively, you can use Siteshare to access your Webserve account by mapping a network drive to the account. It will appear as if the account were stored locally on your computer.

Note:
For your individual web page on Pages (pages.iu.edu), connect to Mercury to work with your files; see At IU, what is Pages, and how can I publish a web page there?

If you have trouble connecting to Webserve, contact Web Services Support.
