Hello,

I want to move an accounf from /home to /home2 but /home2 has already an directory with the same name of the account that I want to move, so I can't use the WHM script, I want move manually the account, files are already moved, and I modified httpd.conf changing /home for /home2 in account directories but in cPanel or WHM home appears instead of /home2

How can I change this manually? What file/s I have to modify?

Thanks in advance

If it's just for the purpose of space that you want to move it, you could just "apparently" move it like I do with some of my accounts.

I have a 2nd drive that I put my own sites on, in a directory I gave a unique name to, and I just move the username directory from home to it's new location and use symbolic linking to point to the new location. For all intents and purposes, the site is still in the home directory, but it's taking space elsewhere, on a different drive in my case.
