We added a 300GB hard drive to our server (there is a 250GB as primary). It was added after the cPanel installer was run, but cPanel was not setup (the left column).

We mounted it under /home2 and now when we make an account it goes to /home2. I checked to rearrange the accounts, but it only shows the home2 mount point.

How do I get cPanel to use our /home directory as well (which does exist)?

Thanks,
Ryan

Go to WHM->Basic cPanel/WHM Setup->Default Home Directory. Make sure it says /home

Yes its /home and below it:

Home Directory Prefix: home

Any ideas?

Its a new install, only one site and rvskin account. So there is enough space. It doesn't list the /home in the rearrange.

Home is just a directory.

Well I still cant rearrange it to the /home directory. Just shows /home2 in the list.

Thanks,

Hi

I have same problem. After a few months the / are being filled op, and I have added a new hardware and mounted it with lvm and ext3 to /home2

But it doesn't show up any places.

Do anybody have a good idea?

As far as I know, it will only work with partitions (contrary to the verbiage in WHM).
Is it possible to use the /home and /home2 partitions, both having free space, at will, such as assigning a package to either of the partitions?

You can use the rearrange accounts button to move accounts among partitions. However, since cPanel/WHM will use the drive with the most available disk space (to avoid unnecessarily filling a partition), this cannot be set on a per-package setting.

Keep in mind the system administration headaches incurred by a partition becoming full (for example, as users consume more of their allocated disk quota).
