i'm using s3fuse to mount an s3 bucket onto ubuntu, so that i can take advantage of the storage space.

here are some environment info: System Info: Linux ip-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx 2.6.38-8-virtual #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 04:06:34 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Distro Environment Ubuntu 11.04

when i run the following command: ~$ /usr/bin/s3fs serverlogs /mnt/s3 output: s3fs: could not determine how to establish security credentials

i have the permissions set right, i not only have the .passwd-s3fs file in my /usr/home directory, but as well as my /etc folder. i grabbed a library class to connect to the S3 with PHP and the credentials work. Any ideas what might be causing this output?

thanks in advance.

i didn't mean to answer my own post, but this seemed to get the s3 mounted, though i could have swore i ran this command last night: "sudo /usr/bin/s3fs -o allow_other serverlogsbucket /mnt/s3/" there is an added slash on at the end of the mount. it could have been sleepy eyes that could have thought this command was run. –  Robert Van Sant Oct 24 '11 at 15:44

There is an added slash on at the end of the mount. It could have been sleepy eyes that could have thought this command was run.
