    How would I find out if /backup is on the 2nd drive?

    Via root I did mkdir /backup

    Then, I enabled backup in WHM to /backup.

    I want to makee sure /backup is on the 2nd drive.

    Thanks~

    Okay, I will call the data center and tell them, thanks~

    Once I get it installed, what do I have to do in order to setup /backup on the second drive?



    Thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.

    When u'll have the second HDD then mount it as /backup and then configure backup from WHM. See
    man mount
    /etc/fstab /etc/mtab for more details.

    Or simply tell the data centre people to mount that hdd as /backup.
