Should I update eyeOS Joomla plugin?

 
Mount your box.net (box.com) account in linux
Box.net (box.com actually now) is a service that enables you to have a place to put files that you want to access from anywhere. Some people (ehem) use it to back up their workstations..
Did your box.net mount start failing recently? They've changed a couple things.. use this guide to set it up again.
First, install davfs
Red Hat based:
# yum install davfs2
Debian based:
# apt-get install davfs2
Now, add the mount point:
# mkdir /box
Add this line to your /etc/fstab:

First, install davfs

Red Hat based:   # yum install davfs2
Debian based:   # apt-get install davfs2
Now, add the mount point:   # mkdir /mnt/box

 

Add this line to your /etc/fstab:

https://www.box.com/dav /mnt/box davfs rw,user,noauto 0 0

 

Add this line to the bottom of the /etc/davfs2/secrets file (replace with your box email address and password)

https://www.box.com/dav

  passwd

 

 

Edit the /etc/davfs2/davfs2.conf

Change:

# use_locks 1
to
use_locks 0

 

Now mount it!
# mount /mnt/box

Show that it's there with 'mount' or with 'df'

 

Worked like a charm at my CentOS 5 & 6 machines!
