# Fixing group permissions in sshfs via OSXfuse

One could mount SSHFS partitions on a Mac OS X system via OSXfuse and MacFusion to access remote files securely as if the files were stored locally. However, group permission seems to not be preserved (get a permission denied message). This post shows how one could fix it by using the -o defer_permissions options.

We were having some issues with PHPStorm not being able to save to an SSHFS mounted volume, and this fixed it for us too. Thanks for your tip!
