Thread: Shared folder not mounting in VirtualBox install despite being in fstab!

  1. #1

    Default Shared folder not mounting in VirtualBox install despite being in fstab!

    I have a shared folder "shared" which lives on the host machine and is shared via virtualbox to the guest as "shared". In fstab, I put:
    Code:
    shared /var/www/testsite vboxsf defaults 0 0
    But when I go to /var/www/testsite nothing is there. If I then execute the command:
    Code:
    sudo mount -t vboxsf shared /var/www/testsite
    then it mounts it! Why isn't fstab auto-mounting the folder?

    This seems to be a virtualbox related question, and as such, should be
    asked in the virtualization forum.
