FTP Retirement Date Extension to September 1, 2022

[Announce] from the UNAVCO Data Archive unav-data at postal.unavco.org
Tue Jul 19 14:40:37 UTC 2022


Dear UNAVCO Community,

As a reminder, the GAGE Facility, operated by UNAVCO, is transitioning from
FTP to HTTPS
<https://postal.unavco.org/pipermail/unav_all/2022-April/003273.html> to
access the data archive file system. The new HTTPS data file server has
been operational and available since June 1st 2020*.*  The FTP server
shutdown date has been extended from June 1, 2022 to *September 1, 2022 *to
provide more time to transition. During this transition period both FTP and
HTTPS will be supported and FTP will continue to be hosted with the same
host and paths. Please note that ongoing changes in best practice
cybersecurity implementation may make FTP unusable to you or your
institution before this date. Most major browsers and operating systems
have already removed pre-installed support for FTP and some even block its
installation. UNAVCO highly recommends you make these changes as quickly as
possible to avoid any disruptions.

The new HTTPS server is located at

https://data.unavco.org

Please start using it at your earliest convenience via a web browser and
update your data access scripts to use it via cURL, Wget, or other scripts,
etc.

Please note the new HTTPS server will have a new file organization in order
to accommodate more instrument types' data, the paths to data will now
start with the instrument type, e.g., /gnss, at the root level. Paths will
change like so:

ftp://data-out.unavco.org/pub/

becomes

https://data.unavco.org/archive/gnss/

Subdirectory structures and filenames under the GNSS directory will remain
unchanged.

See the UNAVCO website for the transition plan
