I'm not sure why but when installing cPanel it seems only 200MB was allocated to /boot so I need to either shrink and extend the current partitions or better I have added extended the drive and have free space (/dev/loop0) I also have added a second drive I could also use (/dev/sdb) how can I use either to extend /boot parition?


df -h

Hey there! cPanel doesn't set up the partitions on the machine, as that is all handled by the operating system. If this is a new installation, it would likely be quicker and easier to just reinstall the OS and reinstall cPanel. If this is an existing machine that already has data, you'd want to reach out to your hosting provider or datacenter to see if they have tools that will perform that work on the disk.
