I am based on this previous idea from Anthony Heddings.
First of all install s3fs package in your Ubuntu:
sudo apt install s3fs
After that you have to go to your AWS console to create a bucket and a user with read/write access permissions to S3. For that purpose this video from Tech Arkit is really useful.
This user should give you a key and secret to access your buckets, that you have to config in you system:
touch /etc/passwd-s3fs echo ACCESS_KEY_ID:SECRET_ACCESS_KEY > /etc/passwd-s3fs chmod 600 /etc/passwd-s3fs
Then you can mount your bucket:
mkdir /mnt/bucket-name s3fs bucket-name /mnt/bucket-name
Usually it takes hours to Amazon to propagate the changes, so immediatelly you can experiment problems. Meanwhile you can use this debug command:
s3fs bucket-name /mnt/bucket-name -o dbglevel=info -f -o curldbg
If you want this to mount at boot, you’ll need to add the following to your /etc/fstab:
s3fs#bucket-name /mnt/bucket-name fuse _netdev,allow_other,umask=227,uid=33,gid=33,use_cache=/root/cache 0 0
