File System Access

Axigen Documentation

Preparation – or Fix for the “Cannot create FUSE mount point” Error

On a Linux File System, because the Axigen process runs under a non-root user (axigen), there are two prerequisites that have to be executed only once by the system administrator:

  1. Create a directory / folder that the axigen user owns

  2. Configure FUSE (in /etc/fuse.conf) to allow non-root users to specify the allow_other or allow_root mount options.

For the first step, the following two commands have to be executed as root in the OS console:

You can choose to select another folder than the one suggested above (/mnt/axigen). 

For the second step, you need to edit the /etc/fuse.conf file and uncomment the user_allow_other setting. 

In case your Linux system does not have the fuse components installed, follow the detailed steps below:

FUSE Mount Point

In the "Mount Object" quick add interface, the following elements appear:

  • the mount point option;

  • the mount scope option.

The mount scope type drop-down contains the options:

  • Domain (default) – select this option to mount the entire domain

  • Object – select this option to mount only an account by specifying the email address

  • Public Folder – select this option to mount a public folder by specifying the public folder's path and the domain containing the public folder

  • Folder – select this option to mount an account's folder by specifying the email address of the account and the folder's path
