Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am very new to linux and some change I have done to the system now fails to mount an s3 bucket as it used to.

The command I have in /etc/fstab is:

s3fs#mybucketname /data/webserver/offline fuse allow_other,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0

I don't know how to check for errors but it is not mounted after a reboot.

1000 is user ubuntu.

If I try s3fs mybucketname /data/webserver/offline -o allow_other -o uid=1000 -o gid=1000 while logged in as ubuntu user I get the following error:

fuse: failed to open mountpoint for reading: Permission denied

If I sudo mount -a the s3 bucket gets mounted just fine.

ls -la /data/webserver of my directory returns:

d---------  2 ubuntu ubuntu     4096 2011-02-11 22:29 offline

Sorry, I am such a noob and I am sure this is probably easy to resolve but I have been googling since this morning and my eyes are tired.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
