The web server is accessed via WebDAV (Distributed Authoring and Versioning). WebDAV is an extension of the HTTP protocol by several methods for data upload and it will replace FTP and HTTP-PUT as upload possibility. The new procedure is supported by all prevalent operating systems as well as by many HTML authoringtools. Please use https whenever possible. For security reasons the access to the upload server is restricted to the RWTH network. Access from outside the RWTH network is only possible via VPN. A suitable WebDAV application is WinSCP (manual). The use of Windows Explorer is not recommended.

The WebDAV access data for contact persons of an URL can be requested via the webhosting portal ("My URLs" → "Details" → "Request WebDAV access data"). This does not include websites that were taken over from the old administration system.
