       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 command:

            $ fusermount -u mount-point
