How to connect and publish your web content

To upload content you'll need to connect to our web server. The settings to establish a connection are as follows:

Setting Example
Username kipling, your SFU Computing ID
Password Your SFU Computing Account password
Server Name

Directory (optional) Some applications may ask for a directory before making a connection. Most will work by providing pub_html, while others may require /home/kipling/pub_html (where ‘kipling’ is repalced with your SFU Computing ID)

Once connected upload your content to the pub_html folder. Your content will then be published online at (where account is your SFU Computing ID).

  • Note: To display your content as a webpage your starting file will need to be named index.htm or index.html.

Put your web files in place. Use binary mode for gif, jpg and jpeg files. Macintosh users who are using a Macintosh operating system prior to OS X, use Raw Data mode.
