Use Terminal to connect to Webserve

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 Terminal as your Secure Shell Protocol (SSH) client. To do so:

  1. Open the Terminal program. You can find it using Finder.

  2. Type ssh, replacing account with the name of your account. Hit Enter. When prompted, enter your account password.

You will be at the command prompt. You may now use Unix commands to work with your account.

For information about Unix commands, see Introduction to Unix commands.
