Yes, you can.  I can do without sudo/root, but I can't do without SSH  
access.  I've been thinking through what I actually use to manage my  
multiple domains, and command-line access -- to run scripts directly,  
to execute shell commands, to be sure I know for sure the contents of  
any directory, to easily edit such things as .htaccess files and  
other . files, in short, to have Unix/Linux/Darwin available -- is the  
minimum ability I want.

details -
but I must have used my user account and not sudo / root.

For instance if I were to fully move over Id have 2 command line  
i'd want to comile from soure and then I'd need to install MediaWiki - I
should be able to do that with the existing ssh access - no?

So would like to know if there are any limitations regarding ssh  
access - as
Ill have to decide between Dreamhost and On-Rev - or to keep both :)
