s3fs install on CentOS AmazonEC2

In an attempt to determine the feasibility of creating an FTP server that is FUSe backed using S3 amazon storage I ran into issues of package dependence.  This is the list of packages I had to install:

sudo yum install curl-devel automake fuse fuse-devel libcurl-devel gcc-c++ openssl-devel libxml2-devel gcc

After that the readme at https://github.com/s3fs-fuse/s3fs-fuse got me throught the rest.

Also the Wiki page is at:


A word of caution, it’s slow, and if you have a S3 directory or bucket your mounting to that has hundreds to thousands of files it’s even worse because it tries to retrieve that list and it takes patience. For FTP it’s not something I’d recommend.

    Have you tried goofys? I wrote it to be a faster version of s3fs.
