Editing Web Sites & Pages


ESF Web Servers

ESF has two servers that host faculty, staff and student websites:

  • www.esf.edu (public)
  • cww.esf.edu (ESF/SU campus-only)

Permission to Access Your Folder(s) on a Web Server

If you don't already have server access permission to edit the contents of your web folder...

  • Faculty & Staff: Contact us at 470-4858, web@esf.edu if you need help with access.
  • Students: Complete the Student Web Access form to gain access. Student access will only be granted if requested or directly confirmed by a faculty/staff supervisor (the Director of Student Involvement & Leadership supervises all student organizations web editors).

On-campus Connection

Windows users with an esf.edu account can "map a network drive" to connect to web folders that they have 'permission' to edit.

This method works only for computers connected directly to the ESF network (on campus).

How to Connect to the Web Server

  • SFTP is the connection protocol
  • www-2.esf.edu is the actual name of the server in all configuration instructions.
  • www.esf.edu remains the beginning of nearly all web addresses for links and users.

All operating systems or web applications require that you log in using the correct configuration. Choose below for detailed instructions:
