Mounting location of non-standard file systems

This is more a 'poll' type question then problem solving one...

I got a big file system that is use by many thru ssh and samba to share videos, pictures and exchange other documents. I usualy mount this at /home/share, but it dont feel it is right anymore. I am looking for a better suited mount point. I will be upgrading the hd very soon but i still dont know where to mount it. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciate...

Where do you mount your shared file system? Where is the traditional mount point for this?

Thanks.

/net/hostname/export via autofs. Auto configured, self documenting.

These days that kind of thing is usually kept under /srv somewhere.

The usual reference to consult is the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. You can consult it for guidance and suggestions, in particular regarding /srv which is open to structuring according to your needs.

The FHS doc specify that /var/www is for proxy and cache. Should web sites be placed on /srv/www/ insted of /var/www/ like Debian's default suggest? –  John Jul 31 '10 at 0:10
    
@John: Not all systems comply with FHS. /var should generally be used for runtime data, but it's not at all uncommon for web sites to be located there or in /home, etc. –  Dennis Williamson Jul 31 '10 at 3:31
