How to mount curlftpfs in fstab
I wanted to permanently mount an ftp directory in fstab, using curlftpfs. I added this line to fstab:


curlftpfs#user:password@ /mnt/share fuse rw,allow_other,user,noauto 0 0
But it doesn't work. Manual addition, using this works:


#curlftpfs -o allow_other ftp://user:password@ /mnt/share

What is wrong?

How can I make CurlFtpFS mount automatically at startup?
You can add it to /etc/fstab. Example:

Code: /mnt/host fuse rw,uid=500,user,noauto 0 0

the "curlftpfs#..." may be needed? I seen to remember doing something similar using glusterfs...

Yeah, I read that doc. And used curlftpfs# at the beginning. I believe, this line looks like the one, they provided:


curlftpfs#user:password@ /mnt/share        fuse rw,uid=500,user,noauto 0 0
But it doesn't work. Maybe, it's because network is not available, when they trying to mount it?
