don't have nfsd mount point in /proc/fs/nfsd...can't start NFS as a result

I installed NFS server and everything started out fine but I don't have /proc/fs/nfsd entry and so I can't mount nfsd. Therefore I can't start my nfs service.

Why don't I have /proc/fs/nfsd? How do I create that?

Try adding

nfsd /proc/fs/nfsd nfsd auto,defaults 0 0
in your /etc/fstab and give a try again.
