Sorry and thanks.
I've found that the when I initially create a separate mount point and
Data.fs file with
and then copy Data.fs to
this almost works:
It works, in that I can navigate through the ZMI, but it fails in that
the plone site embedded in this Data.fs file generates urls that point
back to ../original.
Your comments explain why. Thanks.
Question: this wouldn't be the case for a Zope or Plone folder. If I
rename a folder from 'old_folder_name' to 'new_folder_name', it appears
that the folder has no "memory" of old_folder_name. However, it appears
that a mount point "remembers" where it was created. Isn't that in some
sense a bug?

Usually, I do not answer questions sent to me privately!

I created a mount point, /default_site and a corresponding directory
var/default_site. I build my plone site from scratch into
default_site/site001, and all is good.
I then create a second mount point /kitchensbyartisan and a
corresponding directory var/kitchensbyartisan. I copy
var/default_site/Data.fs into var/kitchensbyartisan. Make the new_site
mount point in the ZMI, restart a lot etc.
However, when I then navigate in the ZMI to kitchensbyartisan, it's
empty and doesn't show site001 (or anything)
Do I need something fancier than the following in zope.conf, some
reference to default_site?
When you use this simple mount-point syntax, then the mount
path is coded into the generated storage and you cannot
mount the storage under a different path.
Actually, the mount-point syntax is much more complex than the form
you use above. Among others, it supports
"mount-path" describes how you reach the mount point
in the mounting application and "storage-path" how you
find the mounted object from the storage root.
An example would be:
Note that the last component in both paths *MUST* be identical
(otherwise, Zope's url construction no longer works with
Usually, the "storage-path" will look like "/XXX" (where "XXX" is
some id (without '/')).
If "storage-path" is not given, it defaults to "mount-path" (this
explains why you do not see anything in your storage).
* always explicitely give a storage path
* use a storage path of the form "/<id>"
* then you can mount the storage at different places
*BUT* you must never mount with a different id
(the mount point must have the same id as that of the
