Using FTP for Personal Web Pages

FTP Instructions

To upload content to your personal web space, you will need your APU NetID, your password, and FTP software, such as Filezilla. The below instructions are for those using Filezilla for Microsoft Windows or Filezilla for the Mac. University machines will have Filezilla installed, but if you do not have the application, you may go to http://filezilla-project.org/download.php to download a free copy.

Files that you want to access from a web browser must be placed in the public_html folder. Otherwise, they will not be accessible from the web.

SSH Instructions

Faculty and staff members who wish to use SSH on personal webpages must request access through the IMT Support Desk. To request access, email support@apu.edu with your name, APU NetID, and the reason SSH access is desired. (Please note: Telnet access is no longer available.)
