If you have been using to manage your collection, there’s nothing to change.

The host that was serving has been replaced. If for some reason you do not have access and believe that you should, you can reply here and a staff member will open a private ticket using the same email address you used for your account here. You don’t need to give any more background than what collection you manage. For example: “Hi, I manage the foobar collection, and I can’t seem to log in now. Please help.”

Before doing that, please check the following:

  • Did you reset the key fingerprints for login.ibiblio in your ssh or sftp client?
  • Did you check that you are using the username associated with your ibiblio collection and not some other account?
  • If you have been using to manage your collection, did you try just continuing to use that?

If none of those work, let us know.


To clarify, the name “” used to be an alias for the host login1, and is now an alias for the host login2. We would still prefer if people use the name for now.

Hi! here. I manage the Paul Green Foundation website and cannot log in. Thanks!

Hi, I manage the Socratic Instrumentation, Socratic Electronics, and Modular Electronics Learning Project collections, and when I reset the key I found my password no longer worked. Help!

I used to log in to “” as follows:
%ssh -i ~/.ssh/id_rsa
i.e., using a private key. But I got an error saying that the host key had changed. So I deleted the ‘offending’ line from “~/.ssh/known_hosts”. Now, when I try to log in, ibiblio asks me for a password. But I never used to need a password; instead, I logged in using a private key. Please help.

Hi, I reinstalled WinSCP and get new key from your server (ssh-rsa 2048 nihOmw…) but I can’t log as demidov. I get “access denied” with my password.

I manage TDL collection and connect via s and this no longer works even after deleting my hosts file.

Hello - replying to your helpdesk ticket about this.

Try logging into login2 with your current credentials, let me know if that doesn’t work for you.

No, that doesn’t work either. It asks me for “’s password”.

Either I’ll need to get a password (for “” and/or “”), or else I’ll need to set up a(nother?) public-private key pair for access. But I’ve forgotten how to do this.

Try logging in to Let me know if that doesn’t work.

try logging in to login2 - if that doesn’t work, let me know.

No, I can’t log in (to either site), because I don’t have a password. I used to be able to log in (to “”) using a public/private key pair, but I can’t get that to work anymore, because of your servers’ key fingerprints changing.

Probably the simplest way to solve this is for you to just send me (by private message, of course) a password for the “confluence” user. (I’ll change the password after I’ve logged in for the first time.)

Ok - I’ll respond to the help-desk ticket about this.

Yes, that worked, thanks!
