I am trying to set up a Ubuntu-machine for web development, and thought i'd start working with SSHFS instead of the annoying FTP-protocol. I installed SSHFS through apt-get. I've created a folder in my documents folder called MyProject. I'm the owner of that folder.

I mount the remote folder to my local folder using

sshfs /home/anton/Documents/MyProject

Followed by my password. Then the remote folder is indeed mounted. However, the changes i make on my local computer is not reflected on the server. What am i missing here?

Ubuntu 12.10
