Can cpanel roll over to a second /home1 partitioned drive when /home is full?

    Weird question but I have a hard drive that is full, I mounted another hard drive and partitioned it as /home1

    Is there a way to have cpanel use this for new accounts now?

    Basically tell cpanel that /home1 is /home and just leave the stuff on home alone.

    Or best run both home directories and roll to the second as the first gets filled.

    O.K. this sounds crazy but maybe it will trigger something that will help figure something out.

    Thanks, Charles

    In WHM's "edit setup", do you have the "Home Directory Prefix:" set to home? This automatically causes new accounts to go into whichever home directory has the most space.

    I forgot about that, I think it will do it that way too.

    Thanks,
