    How to SSH on a Mac

    Hi There,

    I don't know where else to put this, but I would like some help to connect to a server via SSH and then modify some stuff. I just want to modify the max upload file size so I contacted my hosting company and this is what they said:

    The best way is to SSH into the server as the root user and edit the file named -


    ..and search for this text -


    ..and change the value from what it is now to your desired size and restart the web server via this command -

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd restart
    The problem is that I don't have any idea what SSH is. I did some googling but I am not getting the best results.

    Any suggestions on the right software or some tutorials so that I can connect to the server, modify the necessary files, and restart without exploding the server?

    Go to the applications/utilities directory and find and click the terminal application. Use the terminal application to ssh to the server you need to get to.

    ssh username@example.com
