Linux recovery mode read write permissions

By default when we entered into recovery mode root filesystem (/) is mounted with read only permission.

To access root filesystem with read/write permissions you need to re-mount it.

Use following command to remount with read write permissions.

$ mount -o remount,rw /

Mounting root filesystem in recovery mode will help us to edit any wrongly configured files line fstab or network related, etc….
