copyfs-mount - mounts a versioned file system
copyfs-mount version-directory mount-point
This script lets you mount a CopyFS file system. version-directory is
the directory where the files and version information will be stored by
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:
root@host# copyfs-mount /var/versions /mnt/fs
To unmount it, simply do:
root@host# 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 -u mount-point
