Hi,
I going well with the help of cPanel in managing Linux servers, as my experience is in windows hosting.
I don't understand how linux deals with partitions, as there is no C:/ or D:/ as I see.

I've a new server with HDD:

2x HDD SATA 4,0 TB Enterprise

how can I set the /home partition to be the maximum size before installing cPanel,
when I install cPanel from server from OVH I found the home partition max. size
/dev/md2 3.7T
from Hetzner, I found 2 partitions
/dev/md2 2.0T & /dev/md3 1.7T

is there a command I can use before installing cPanel, makes /home the max. possible?

Hey there! If you just don't choose any advanced partitioning scheme when setting up the operating system, all data will get put into one large / partition, which will just mean that everything is one large partition, and any area of the machine (such as /home) can grow to fill that space.

You'd want to speak with each provider you're looking at to see how they configure their partitions, but the OVH example is what you're looking for.
