This is a bit vague of a question, as I could just create a folder anywhere in the filesystem and set the permissions accordingly. However, I would like to know where the "correct" location to place shared media in the Linux filesystem hierarchy would be.
In my case I have a single machine with a user for personal/recreational stuff and a work user. I have my entire music library duplicated in each users home directory, but it is not really an optimal solution in the long term with regards to adding music.
My initial guess would be to place a folder in
/usr, since the data is mostly static. But in the case where I would like to share other items, for instance documents, between the two accounts, should the share then rather be created in
/var, or is
/opt a better place for a shared drive/folder?
