I'm trying to make my rsnapshot-backups available to non-root users on a Ubuntu server. There is a step-by-step instruction in the rsnapshot HOWTO, which I think I've followed to the letter.
The HOWTO tells me to create the directories /.private/.snapshots/ (backup folder) and /.snapshots/ (mount point).
In /etc/exports, add /.private/.snapshots/ as a read only NFS export:
In /etc/fstab, mount /.private/.snapshots/ read-only under /.snapshots/
localhost:/.private/.snapshots/ /.snapshots/ nfs ro 0 0
However, when I issue the command:
I get this error message:
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting localhost:/.private/.snapshots/
The package nfs-kernel-server is installed and I restarted it after editing /etc/exports.
What did I miss?
