Connecting to a Web Space through SFTP

If you have a personal website hosted on facstaff.elon.edu, you must connect to your web space using SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

Connection Settings

Use the following settings within your SFTP client to access your personal website files:

  • Hostname/server: facstaff.elon.edu
  • Port: 22
  • Protocol: SFTP/SSH
  • Username: Elon account username (without @elon.edu)
  • Password: Password of the account (same as email, Moodle, etc.)
  • Path: /username

SFTP Clients

Using an SFTP client will allow you to upload, access, and download files on your website. Examples of SFTP clients include WinSCP (Win), Fetch (macOS), and Cyberduck (Win, macOS). Some web editors such as Adobe Dreamweaver can also connect to SFTP.

Be careful when downloading and installing free programs from the Web. Read the complete text, especially any checkboxes that may give sites permission to download and install other programs (like adware) that can be difficult to remove.
