I have installed Syncthing on my VPS and it is running under the
syncthing user. I have added additional storage space with a Storage Box and mounted it via
sshfs. Its file permissions look like this:
drwxr-xr-x 1 syncthing syncthing 4B Sep 5 15:20 storagebox
I have used the
-o idmap=user -o uid=foo -o gid=bar option for
sshfs in order to map the remote Storage Box user to my local
Unfortunately this does not work. When I try to create a folder there the webinterface responds with:
2018-09-05 15:50:22: Loading ignores: open /mnt/storagebox/somefolder/.stignore: operation not permitted
2018-09-05 15:50:22: Creating folder marker: stat /mnt/storagebox/somefolder/: operation not permitted
2018-09-05 15:50:22: Error on folder “somefolder” (foobar): stat /mnt/storagebox/somefolder/: operation not permitted
How can I make this work? The remote user for
sshfs does not exist on my VPS and I hoped that just mapping it over would be enough.
sudo -u syncthing touch /mnt/storagebox/testfile fails but it works as root.
