Hello All,

/home partition on my server is 100% full. Will adding a new HDD help?

Please suggest me the solution how can I create space.

Yes, it will help. Just make sure you partition the new drive as /home2, this way cpanel will add new accounts to that drive. You can then move some of the old, larger accounts off the first drive using the "ReArrange Accounts" feature to free up some space.

Hi there,
I have a dual hard drive system (set up and installed by the folks at RackShack) and when I try to rearrange an account, I get a little message saying:
'Sorry, there is only one drive in this machine'

I know both drives are working (as I have data stored on both of them).

Has anybody come across this and does anybody have a fix for it??

What is the name of the partition you are trying to move the accounts to?

Hi compunet2,
thanks for replying. I'm trying to move an account from /home2 to /home... but I can't even get that far :( When it asks me to select a new mount point for the account, the drop down box only has 'Sorry, there is only one drive in this machine.'

ugh

Ask your client to delete

*.html

at /home/yourclient/tmp/analog

This folder store "Web / FTP Stats" from you add new account. If you use cpanel tranfer the accounts from other server/host to this server, folder "Web / FTP Stats" will store all info about stats from the first account created.

I hope help !

Why can't you just bring a new server up?

Too many clients on one server is not good.

Lots of users on one server = high server loads.
High server loads = long page execution times.
Long page execution times = angry customers.

I have the quite opposite issue.

I have 2 drives /home and /home2 and cpanel alternates installing new clients to either one.

How do I prevent this - I want them all on /home for tech support reasons. I do not want them alternating at ALL!

Any way to turn this feature off?

Thanks,

In WHM under Server Setup, you'll see edit setup. In there, just change "Home Directory Prefix:" from it's default "home" to something different. then when you want it to start using the home2, just put it back.

i cant do that however, since i have clients that are using /home/ that would make their scripts nonworking.

Any other way to make cpanel NOT use /home2/ ?

Another way of stopping it is to do like I do. My 2nd drive has a "home" directory but I call it /base instead. That makes cpanel not know it's there for websites and I just manually move any sites I want moved, then symlink the new location to the home directory. That makes everything run as if all sites were in home, and allows me to decide which drive each site is on.

cpanel has a move command in whm which does just that.

I wish they would have done a toggle switch to do the auto switching rather than a default 'we pick the drive to install on, and if you don't like it, then manually move the site'.

just move it, and update the httpd.conf, and change the default home dir to /home2 or something.
