I am trying to provide root access to a DEV that is helping me with my Spout site. I have created the username ppratlola and need to give him root access.

How do I do that?

Thanks again for the help.

You need to grant the new user access to the specific folder or all the folders with the setfacl command. Here is more information about how to do this: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/general.html?highlight=granting#granting-access-to-specific-users.

How do I login to an SSH session? I can see SSH/FTP and Change SSH/FTP, but do not know how to get to the session.
