I use Eclipse to upload to a staging folder and then move them using a SSH
session as well.  Not absurd but is tedious.

Does this sound unreasonable, or is it just me?

In order to upload files to the website, I have to do this:

1. Use WinSCP to log in to the server as myself and transfer files from my
PC to my home directory on the server.

2. Use PuTTY to log in to the server as myself, then su as root, and from
the command line move the files from my home directory to the website's

Seems like a very tedious process to update files, especially when you're
modifying files in this subdirectory and that subdirectory.

It's set up this way for security -- no ftp access and no logging in as
