All your projects will be tested on thoth. Do not compile and run your projects on your local machines if possible. Please please please get this stuff set up ASAP.
Getting more AFS space
By default, you only have 4 MB of space. To get more:
- Login to accounts.pitt.edu.
- Click “Email and Messaging”, and in the dropdown, “Unix Quota.”
- Click the “Increase Quota” button.
Now you should have 1 GB of space, which should be MORE than enough.
Accessing your AFS space through an FTP client
- WinSCP is pretty much the best option on Windows.
- The FileZilla Client works on any platform and is nice too.
- Cyberduck works on Mac and Windows.
Once you have a client:
- Log into the server with the following settings:
- Port: 22
- Protocol: SFTP
- Username: your Pitt username, all lowercase (e.g. I enter
- Password: idk lol
- Save this configuration so you don’t have to type it in every time
- Once it’s logged in:
- You will see your remote files, usually on the right
publicfolder is where you can host a website
privatefolder is where you’ll want to do all your work
- You can edit remote files by right clicking the remote file and clicking something like “edit locally” or whatever
- WinSCP will auto-upload the file whenever you save it, but FileZilla will force you to click “yes” in a dialog box
