    Hello,

    These values correspond to the following options in "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Basic WebHost Manager® Setup":

    HOMEDIR - Enter the location where you wish for new users’ home directories to be created. By default all directories matching the "Home Directory Prefix" are checked for available disk space and the directory with the most free space will be used.

    HOMEMATCH - Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations. (Leaving this value blank disables the feature.) This option only takes one value.

    Additional information on these options is available at:

    Basic cPanel WHM Setup - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Let us know if you have additional questions.

    Thanks!
