Advice on http access for storage
Sorry if this has been answered already, I've searched everywhere without finding anything specific to my question. New to Fedora 9 and Linux in general. I am looking for advice regarding my storage drives. I have a 40GB drive containing my Fedora partitions and have added 2 500GB drives for storage/backup, at least 1 of which I would like to make available via http for convenience, for access from any location. At this point I think I would like to leave the 2 drives as separate, instead of RAID.
What is the most sensible way to go about this, for security and simplicity?
Mount the file to /mnt/foldername and link to my webroot?
Mount the drives directly to my webroot? (I seem to recall errors when attempting to mount to webroot on my first install, but maybe unrelated).
Am I even on the right track or missing something fundamental?
Any help appreciated, thanks in advance.
