Need access to server files via ftp

Recommended Posts

I am needing to access server files for things like a banner image.  Does squarespace really not allow users to access files at a server level via ftp, server file management resource tools, ect?

How does an individual download site resources that we upload for preservation or transfer?  I have never encountered a service like this which is so closed off preventing its users from conducting basic site management thus I am lost.

Is there a way to at least gain SSH access via Linux?

Edit To Post:  While I still would like to know if there is any server access as per my above questions... I did find a work around albeit a very clunky one.  Open an alternate browser which is not being used for "development".  Go so the site, simply right click to view image in browser and save.  It is very tedious if your site is large, luckily the one I am working with is small.  As long as there is no image protection enabled this will work with banner images, .ico files, and other image media albeit again... very clunky and time consuming.

No.

SS was designed to protect the user from much of the arcane web technology stack.

SS is not like WordPress or other old school ways of building websites.

That's really unfortunate there is no solution to the need. I definitely wouldn't call these needs arcane. 

Nevertheless I see what is being done for those with less experience and knowledge and how that could be valuable to some.
