The heck? I thought people used FTP for website work. Well, sometimes. SSH is neat too, and it's what we use for FreeCulture.org. SSH is encrypted, which means security. It allows terminal (command-line) access, in addition to file transfers.


It's not all that scary.

For File transfer

SSH uses the SFTP/SCP protocol for file transfer.

  • Grab a program
    • Windows
      • Check out winscp or filezilla
    • Mac

It you're on linux, you can just set run the "connect to server" thingey and choose SSH.

  • The server is freeculture.org
  • The username is freecult
  • Ask a webteam member (probably asheesh) to get the password

That's it! Now that wasn't so bad, was it?

For Other Stuff

You can use the super scary terminal. if you're on windows, you might need to dl putty.
