homestead 2.0 nfs mounts

So you are using homestead, all fancy with it, to discover later that its slow, really slow.

After some googling around you discover that you can use NFS instead, and a few solutions involve changing homestead code. Not true. You only need to add a “type: nfs” in your mount point config in Homestead.yaml:

folders:
  - map: ~/src
    to: /home/vagrant/src
    type: nfs

    • Write your password. You need to do this everytime vagrant needs to change /etc/exports, only writable by root.
