Web Development Systems on Shared UW Hosting
About These Systems
The Web Development Systems are your central access point for web publishing on Shared UW Hosting. You can connect to them using a SFTP client such as FileZilla to transfer files to your website, and you can also connect via SSH to access a full-fledged GNU/Linux command line where you can run programs, set up MySQL, and quickly edit your files directly on the servers.
All web development servers access the same filesystems. Users should select one based on their affiliation.
