Mounting/unmounting remote file system via sshfs
# create a local directory on a linux machine sudo mkdir -p /mnt/Biowikifarm # change username: ownership settings ?must be the same as on the remote system sudo chown yourusername-on-the-biowikifarm /mnt/Biowikifarm/ # mount the remote system; needs sshfs (ubuntu: apt-get install sshfs) sshfs -o follow_symlinks email@example.com:/ /mnt/Biowikifarm/ # now you can browse and save from within your local computer # note that symlinks are displayed as folders, not as symlinks actually # unmount the remote system on your local machine fusermount -u /mnt/Biowikifarm/
Note that any other user group on the wiki is not shown on your local computer, but just group ID-numbers. But you can create an identical user group on your local machine with the same group ID.
