Please DISREGARD the information below!

IT is preparing to move media content, including WCU slideshows, to a new server (media.wcu.edu). As a result, those of you who maintain website slideshows will need to make a small change to your slideshow configuration on the morning of Monday, June 17. The old address will be discontinued on June 14 at 5 p.m. Please note that the slideshows will continue to function/display as usual without your making the change, but in order to update your slideshow you must first make the change.

How to Make the Change

First, open Filezilla and go to File > Site Manager. Then, follow the three steps below (screenshot attached):

1. Select your site from the list at left
2. Under the General tab at right, change the Host: field from webmedia.wcu.edu to media.wcu.edu
3. Click OK
You should then be able to connect and continue your slideshow work as usual.
