Use Terminal to connect to Webserve

Important:
On Webserve, the default version of PHP is 7.1; however, PHP 5.6 will still be available until it is retired at the end of December 2018. Webtest servers are already using PHP 7.1. For help specifying which version of PHP to use, 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 account@webserve.iu.edu, 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.

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