How To Publish Using WinSCP

If you are not using a web page editor that has built in file transfer tools (FTP) you can use WinSCP to upload your pages and files to the CSU web server (CSUSAP).

If you are using another file transfer program you will need to refer to the help documentation provided with that software.

Once you have transferred your files to the server, check the site to ensure your changes have been successfully made (Press the "Refresh" button to reload the page in your browser).
