copyfs-mount(1) mounts a versioned file system

SYNOPSIS

copyfs-mount version-directory mount-point

DESCRIPTION

This script lets you mount a CopyFS file system. version-directory is the directory where the files and version information will be stored by CopyFS.

When using CopyFS for the first time, copyfs-mount will create the required files in the version-directory before running copyfs-daemon. mount-point is the directory where the copyfs file system will be mounted. This is where the users will have access to the files.

If you want to mount a CopyFS at '/mnt/fs', whose version directory is at /var/versions, you would use:

        [email protected]# copyfs-mount /var/versions /mnt/fs

To unmount it, simply do:

        [email protected]# umount /mnt/fs

As you would do for any other filesystem.

You can also allow an ordinary non-root users to mount and unmount CopyFS filesystems provided that the user is added to the 'fuse' group. Ordinary users will be able unmount the filesystem, using the fusermount command:

        $ fusermount -u mount-point
