E-Locker is a virtual space where you complete and store college web-based projects.

By using this service, you must read and agree to the College Acceptable Use Guidelines. In order to use your web space, you must already enrolled at the college and have a valid Central Piedmont login.

  1. Enable Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) on your account using the instructions in the following "Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)/Secure Copy Protocol (SCP)" section.
  2. Download an FTP/SFTP software to your computer using the instructions in the next section.
  3. Connect to e-Locker with the SFTP software:
    1. host/server: sftp.cpcc.edu
    2. port: 22
    3. username and password: your regular Central Piedmont student login
  4. Transfer files between your device and your e-locker.
  5. Create a folder called "www."
  6. Put any content you wish to be available via the web in the "www'" folder.
