SSHFS (Secure SHell FileSystem) is a file system for GNU/Linux, BSD and other UNIX like OS that allows you to mount a remote directory in userspace (filesystem userspace) making use of FUSE and ssh. Once you mounted the remote directory you can do any operation over it as if it were a local DIR.
$ sudo apt-get install sshfs
Enable EPEL repo
# yum install fuse-sshfs
$ sshfs [usuario@]host:[dir] access-point [opciones]
access-point = DIR where you will mount the remote DIR
$ sshfs email@example.com:/var/www/flossblog flossblog
