Robin Hartmann asked:
When I try to run sshfs, I get the error
fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first. I already ran
sudo modprobe fuse, but it just returns immediately without any output and the error persists:
[[email protected] main]# modprobe fuse [[email protected] main]# sshfs user:[email protected] mnt fuse: device not found, try 'modprobe fuse' first
I can also verify that fuse is loaded:
[[email protected] ~]$ lsmod | grep fuse fuse 4242 -2
This is on a VPS with freshly installed CentOS. The OS is up-to-date, as far as I can tell:
[[email protected] ~]$ cat /etc/centos-release CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core)
Running virt-what yields the following:
[[email protected] ~]$ virt-what openvz lxc
Any ideas on how I can resolve this?
Eww, it’s OpenVZ. That’s why it doesn’t work. You can’t load modules (properly) on OpenVZ without the VPS provider doing it for you. These guys somehow managed to screw it up. Go find a nice KVM VPS.
