Setting up NFS client/serveradmin
Network File System (NFS) is a network file system protocol originally developed by Sun Microsystems in 1983, allowing a user on a client computer to access files over a network as easily as if the network devices were attached to its local disks.
1. Install the server package
apt-get install nfs-kernel-server
2. Grant permission to a client computer
Add the following line to /etc/exports to grant read only permissions to the folder /var/www for the ip address 192.168.1.2:
ro = Read only access
rw = Read/Write access
root_squash = Replace logins from root user with nobody to avoid superuser privileges over nfs
Restart the server to enable the changes
Create the target mount folder
Mount the file system:
mount 192.168.1.1:/var/www /mnt/www
Optionally you can mount the filesystem on system boot by adding entry to the /etc/fstab file:
192.168.1.1:/var/www /mnt/www nfs
