Public Linux Web Server
On June 15, 2022, two-factor authentication will be in place for the OIT Public LAMP environment (linux.oit.utk.edu). You will receive a Duo prompt when trying to connect to your Public LAMP account using an SSH or SFTP client. In addition, WordPress updates will require a manual update and upload process.
