Installing FUSE + s3fs and sshfs on Ubuntu

Fuse is a program to mount «foreign» filesystems to your computer. This is how I got an Amazon S3 (simple storage service) bucket mounted on my Ubuntu server as if it were a local folder.

Install the necessary libraries:

sudo aptitude install build-essential libcurl4-openssl-dev libxml2-dev libfuse-dev comerr-dev libfuse2 libidn11-dev libkadm55 libkrb5-dev libldap2-dev libselinux1-dev libsepol1-dev pkg-config fuse-utils sshfs

We also installed the sshfs (SSH File System) in order to test out FUSE. Go ahead and create a mount folder and mount a remote drive to it:

sudo mkdir -p /mnt/sshfs

sudo chown user:fuse /mnt/sshfs

sudo sshfs user@hostname:/path/on/remote/server /mnt/sshfs

You should now be able to browse files on /path/on/remote/server, locally from /mnt/sshfs. Please note that you will need to set the ownership of the mount before you’ll be able to use it. The fuse group was created automatically and is a good place to start.
