I have NFS shares on a file server that I would like to mount on a web server.
For example, a music streamer web application (subsonic) would be hosted on the web server and stream music files located on the file server via NFS shares.
1) Would it be better if I used autofs rather than a simple mount in fstab?
2) Could I use the same system to store web pages without losing performance? (Web pages rendered on the web server but ruby or php files stored on the NFS share). That way, a small team of devs could work on a shared folder and view the result on the webserver.
