Right, but giving myself a directory doesn't allow me to put files other
places in /var/www/html....

My goal here is to be able to use my iPad over my ssh port to pull down
files, edit them and save them back. Also, upload new files when I am at my

With /var/www/html owned by root:root and me loggin in as 'jason' I cannot
accomplish this. I don't allow root logins over ssh...
