    Hello!

    I just got my new cpanel-server, which has 2 hdds in it. My hoster didn't mount the second drive, so I did it myself via WHM -> Format/Mount a new Hard Drive. As mount-point /home2 was specified. And now to my problem...

    /home was the former location of all accounts, but after the installation of the new drive, /home cannot be selected for new accounts under WHM, nor can I move existing accounts on /home2 to /home. It is like it's gone, but the old accounts on /home still work fine.

    Is there any way to fix this problem, so that I can use /home too ? /home doesn't have its own partition, but resides under /.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mine too. I thought it was just a problem with my setup....


    I found that if you set the default partition to "/home" in Basic cPanel/WHM Setup then you will see them both.




    Time to submit a bug in bugzilla I guess...

    Doesn't work for me - default home is set to "/home", home directory prefix is set to "home" and I only see /home2 as available.

    Hi,

    Please login to the server via shell and type the following command and let us know the result,

    1. #fdisk -l
    2. #mount
    3. #df -h
