mount --bind drops?

Hey guys, I have a few directories that I have mounted to allow access via FTP. On friday afternoon they dropped? Any ideas what would cause these mounts to drop? Do they drop after a re boot?

Mounts will drop after a reboot unless you have placed them in your /etc/fstab or used something like like autofs

I'm not entirely familiar with the --bind option. What not use a symlink?

I dunno, I guess I could use a symlink, I have always just done it with mount --bind. What command do you use to get the symlink to work for an FTP server?


fstab, ftp, mount
