$ sudo mount.objectivefs config -i s3:// Creating config for Amazon in /etc/objectivefs.env Enter ObjectiveFS license: <your ObjectiveFS license> Enter Default Region (optional): <your S3 region, e.g. eu-west-1>
Create your filesystem (one-time only)
$ sudo mount.objectivefs create <your filesystem name> Passphrase (for <filesystem>): <your passphrase> Verify passphrase (for <filesystem>): <your passphrase>
Mount your filesystem
Mount your filesystem on an existing empty directory, e.g.
/ofs. The ObjectiveFS process will run in the background.
$ sudo mkdir /ofs $ sudo mount.objectivefs <your filesystem name> /ofs Passphrase (for //<filesystem>): <your passphrase>
[Optional] Multi-server setup
Mount this filesystem on as many servers as you wish by running steps 1 and 3 on each server. Each server can read and write to the same filesystem at the same time.
