Running out of space on my Managed VPS-1000.  I would like to s3fs-fuse mount my S3 storage.  The fuse kernel module is not enabled/loaded and modprobe won't load it.  Where can I get a kernel with fuse support?

Happy to help out! Because kernel modules affect the entire system,  you would need a Dedicated Hosting Plan to install them. While you can always upgrade to a Dedicated plan, it  may be more cost effective to simply upgrade from the VPS-1000 to one of our other VPS plans with more disk space. 


Please note that the VPS-1000 itself is a legacy plan and, if you aren't already on the VPS-1000HA-S, that might be all the upgrade you need! Just check your currently available space in comparison with the disk space on other plans and feel free to reach out to our 24/7 Customer Service team if you have any questions about  upgrading.
