I have a backup script scheduled on a Debian 5.0 x86 server, via sshfs. However, when I attempt to mount the remote directory, I receive:
failed to open /dev/fuse: Permission denied
ls -l /dev/fuse returns:
crwxrwxr-x 1 root fuse 10, 229 2010-11-12 09:08 /dev/fuse
id backup returns:
uid=501(backup) gid=501(backup) groups=501(backup),46(plugdev),108(fuse)
The only way I can get the directory to mount is if I run
chmod a+w /dev/fuse, but this is reset at some point during the day. It's a kludge though, and I'd rather figure out why the group permissions aren't working.
