Linux File System Layout


In this article we are going to talk about File System Layout of Linux.

The Linux File System is very important to understand.

On top of all the file system there is a directory called root (/). The root file system is the standing point of everything here.

So in the root directory, there are couple of default directory you can see always.

Those file systems are,

/ – root directory

/boot – Which contains everything your system needs to start up.

/usr – This is very important directory where the program file contents are stored

/etc – The directory which contains all the configuration files.

/home – The directory contains users individual files.

/mnt – Used to mount the cd/dvd
