Is it possible to use macfuse / sshfs to mount an sftp? Since I do not have ssh access as per inmotion's policy, but I would still wish to use the terminal to manage my file nonetheless, what is the username etc that I should use?

Hello Macadphotos,

Unfortunately, it is not possible for you to connect to the server in that manner. That is only available on VPS/Dedicated server accounts. You would need to connect the account with normal FTP using the Cpanel user name.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
