Use Cyberduck to connect to Webserve

Important:
The Webserve and Webtest servers use PHP 7.1; PHP 5.6 has been retired and is no longer available. For more about PHP at IU, see PHP server-side scripting language.

For Mac users, UITS suggests using Cyberduck as your Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) client. Cyberduck is available from IUware.

To use Cyberduck on Webserve:

  1. Open Cyberduck. In the upper left, click Open Connection.

  3. In the remaining fields, enter the following:
    • Server: webserve.iu.edu
    • Username: Name of your web account
    • Password: Your Webserve account passphrase
      Note:
      For most, the name of the web account appears after the tilde (~) in the URL for that account.
  4. Click Connect.
  5. A window will open and list files and directories in your Webserve account. To view the files within a directory, click the triangle next to it.

  6. To upload files or folders, drag them from your computer to the www directory in the Cyberduck window. To download files or folders, drag them from Cyberduck to your computer.
