Site Maintenance portal for the ACES Web Infrastructure

This is the portal for low-level access to maintain your website.

If you're site employs a CMS (like Drupal or Wordpress), then you can log into your site directly and access the web-based administration "dashboard" there. However, access for Low-level management of your site is done via SSH/SFTP protocol. (SSH for a command-line shell/environment, SFTP for interactive file access/management within your site-storage area(s).)

Note: Insecure protocols like telnet and FTP are not available for use with the ACES Web Infrastructure.

Below are a list of reference documents covering the specifics of connecting to your websites and editing site pages on the ITCS web server:
