    Hey guys, so I'm out of diskspace on sda2 mounted on /, but have plenty of diskspace on sda3 mounted on /home/

    How can I tell WHM/cPanel to utilize that space as well?

    Hello,

    The following document can help you to determine what's taking up the most space in this partition:

    How to Manage your Hard Drive Space

    Could you also let us know the output from the "df -h" command on this system?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    You can use the document linked in my last response to get a better idea of what's taking up space on this drive. However, generally you'd need to consult with your provider to determine the best approach to increasing the space or replacing the drive with one that has more capacity. We document the recommended partition setup at:

    Installation Guide - System Requirements - Version 64 Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.

    The problem is that with sda3, you see that I have a drive with more space. How can I tell cPanel to use that instead of sda2?

    You can't change the partition setup or reallocate space through any options in cPanel. You'd need to consult with your provider to determine the best approach to changing your partition scheme.

    Thank you.
