Where you mount public data folders?


Hello,

I come from a Windows background where I normally create and share a folder on another partition to host client data such as E:\Data.

What do Linux systems admins do? Do you create a folder on the root such as /data and mount the partition to that folder? Is there a standard most people follow?

Thanks!

terosaur, just like Windows, every user/admin will do this differently. Some use /var, some create a new directory off /, etc. If you created a separate partition for this, maybe /data or /shared off the root might make sense.

Your choice.

I noticed that the FHS mentions a /srv folder that is meant for service data such as www, ftp, etc..

So if I'm setting up a Samba server, creating a /srv folder and then creating a sub-folder /srv/samba, then /srv/samba/data and then share out the data folder.

Thanks for the response!
