    Hello,

    The /etc/fstab file should exist by default upon a minimal installation of CentOS 7. Did you install CentOS 7 manually, or is this a template offered by your hosting provider? Note the following commands should act as a workaround so you can proceed with the installation:

    Code:
    touch /etc/fstab
    chmod 0640 /etc/fstab
    Thank you.

    Could you provide some more information? For instance, was CentOS 7 installed manually on this VPS, or was it installed as part of a template offered by your VPS hosting provider?

    Thank you.
