Tedd... Goad you got the answer you needed as far as safely attacking the 
command line if my memory serves me correctly you are on a Mac so What you are 
looking for is a program called terminal. 

It's in the utilities folder of your harddrive. Then what you would do is 
assuming your host supports ssh is simply type into the terminal application: 
ssh youruzern...@yourdomain 

Say yes when it asks if you want to store the encryption key (I think that's 
what it's called) and then enter your password. Once all of that is done then 
just type in the command that was given and it will create the file just as you 

Now I typed all that for the archives since you found a way to do t with exec 
but I'm always happy to help the archives where I can :)

Have a great night!
