Mount a drive or volume to use with Amahi home server

How to mount a drive or volume to be accessible by Amahi home server:

First you need to find out what the volume is called within Fedora. To list the drives recognized by the system type the following in terminal:

ls /dev/sd*

Let’s say you want to mount the volume named “sdb1”, then use:

mount /dev/sdb1 /var/hda/files/myvolume

If the volume you want to mount is an NTFS drive, instead use:

mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /var/hda/files/myvolume

Note that you may need to change priviligies on the mounted drive if you want to download directly from Amahi or copy to it over the network.

When you’ve mounted the volume in /var/files/ you only need to specify the name you gave it to add it as a share in Amahi share settings.

If you want to mount the volume automatically when you boot, read Automount a volume in Fedora.
