Siteshare at IU (retired)

Siteshare will not be available on IU Sitehosting. To access your account on IU Sitehosting, you will need to use SSH or SFTP. To learn more about the options for connecting to the IU Sitehosting servers, see Connect to the IU Sitehosting servers.

At Indiana University, Siteshare provides an alternative method of accessing your Webserve account by permitting you to map a network drive to the account. When you map a drive to your account, it will appear as if the account were stored locally on your computer. This permits you to drag and drop files between your computer and your account, and to work with these files in the same manner you do with other files on your computer.

  • Siteshare will only connect to your Webserve account.
  • Webtest and MySQL servers are not available through Siteshare.
  • Siteshare does not give access to the command line interface.

As with any method of accessing your Webserve account, if you are not connected to the IU network, you will need to establish a VPN connection before using Siteshare.
