Mounting a directory in a directory

You can mount a directory inside another directory. It is a functional analogue of having it hard linked, which is normally available only for files.

You can do it either by running a command:

  • mount --bind source_dir destination_dir

or, if you want it to be permanent, adding a line to your /etc/fstab:

  • source_dir   destination_dir   none   defaults,bind   0   0
