    I'm trying to create new accounts, but its having a problem where it wont create a directory for the account (if I go into shell, it doesn't show the directory in the /home2). When I try to create an account from WHM, here is what I get:

    Does the /home2 mount actually exist? If so, what do you have its permissions/ownership set to?

    It exists, I can browse it. Attrib: 755, owner: 0, group 0. I tried to manually create a directory, and it failed ("cannot create directory : read-only file system"). Shouldn't 755 be read write?

    df -h
    grep home2 /etc/fstab
