mkdir ~/mnt/2letter
echo PASSWORD | sshfs -o password_stdin www-data@localhost:/var/www/sites/2letter ~/mnt/2letter -o sshfs_sync,cache=no,password_stdin

After this:

$ ls -ld ~/mnt/2letter/
drwxr-xr-x 1 www-data www-data 4096 Jan 28 21:29 /home/porton/mnt/2letter/

I need to access /home/porton/mnt/2letter/ under my UID (porton) not as www-data, because I am not allowed by file system permissions to modify www-data owner files, but need to edit them.

Moreover it seems to have been working with the correct UID with older versions of Linux. Why doesn't it work now?


Try chucking in the two following options

-o idmap=user,uid=<YOUR UID>
  • Yes, it works, I need also to specify gid=XXX, but why does it works only with numeric IDs – porton Jan 28 '13 at 21:18

    You will have to ask the author(s) of sshfs that question :) – tink Jan 28 '13 at 21:28
