The WWW2 web server hosts HTML websites for special department projects.

The URL is http://www2.ecu.edu/yourdirectory.

To create a website for a class or other academic use, use the the self-service people.ecu.edu or sites.ecu.edu interface. Department websites (except a special project) are created in the Official WordPress CMS.

Faculty, Staff

Get Started

Create the Pages

Using the authoring software of your choice, create and save your site pages on your computer.

Be sure to name your home page one of the following:

  • home.html
  • home.htm
  • index.html
  • index.htm
  • default.html
  • default.htm

Upload the Pages

Method 1. File Transfer Protocol

Once the page/s are created on your computer, upload these pages to the WWW2 server using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) software. There are free-standing FTP programs, such as FileZilla, Fetch and others. Dreamweaver has a built-in FTP feature.

FTP Settings:

  • host: ftpwww2.ecu.edu
  • encryption: Require explicit FTP over TLS
  • user: intra\yourPirateID
  • default remote directory: /yourfolder

Method 2. Mapped Network Drive

Rather than FTP, faculty and staff can also access a WWW2 site from a mapped drive on their campus computer (INTRA domain). Web pages can then be dragged from one folder to another. The mapped drive will be \\www2\wwwroot\yourfolder.
