Over the last month, I have been continuing my work at automating my systems and have made a lot of progress in that effort.

Part of that will be relocating some files that I still want web-accessible, but not on this website. Enter DigitalOcean Spaces, and MinFS to access it.

Set was super simple: After installation, I edited /etc/minfs/config.json to set my Spaces access key and secret key, then added the /etc/fstab entry, created the directory, and mounted it.

/etc/fstab: /mnt/unixdude minfs defaults,cache=/tmp/unixdude-minfs 0 0
[root@ansible-test(U20):67:/mnt/unixdude/ataridude]df -h .
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
MinFS            64T     0   64T   0% /mnt/unixdude
[root@ansible-test(U20):68:/mnt/unixdude/ataridude]ls -l
total 0
-rw-rw---- 0 root root 67748394 Oct 27 22:57

The URL for that file is:

Pretty slick. I'll be adding more to that space over time.

Also: 64T - wow!
