Cloud Storage: SSH Mount How to

Installing fuse-sshfs

 

Debian/Ubuntu

apt-get install sshfs

CentOS

wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install fuse-sshfs

 

Setup sshmount

 

Create the mountpoint directory:

mkdir /mnt/sshfs_mount

Connect and mount with sshfs:

sshfs user@hostname:/ /mnt/sshfs_mount/

If the Cloud Storage panel informs you to connect to cloudstorage3.hivelocity.net or cloudstorage4.hivelocity.net, use the full path to your remote home directory:

sshfs user@hostname:/home/user/ /mnt/sshfs_mount/

You may now write to your newly mounted storage in /mnt/sshfs_mount/.

 

Using rsync

 

Synchronizing a local directory with a remote one:

rsync -r -a -v --delete /home /mnt/sshfs_mount

CentOS Example:

[root@centos6 ~]# wget https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
