Install NFS (Network File System) On Debian Linux Ubuntu Mint Howto

sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server  #oops there are no exports so it won't startsudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
 * Not starting NFS kernel daemon: no exports.
#we will use the /tmp/nfstestshare directory for our NFS share

mkdir /tmp/nfstestshare

#add it to /etc/exports (basically what NFS checks to determine what to make an NFS share)

/tmp/nfstestshare 192.168.1.5(rw,sync,no_root_squash)

As you can see the brackets take 3 variables as follows:

  1. ro (readonly) or rw (readwrite)
  2. sync means no changes to the directory until changes are committed
  3. no_root_squash allows root to access the directory
sudo /etc/init.d/nfs-kernel-server start
