    Code:
    /dev/sda2             2.4G  1.3G  1.1G  55% /
    /dev/sda1              99M   10M   84M  11% /boot
    tmpfs                1014M     0 1014M   0% /dev/shm
    /dev/sda5             3.4G  2.9G  361M  90% /home
    /dev/sda7             745M   18M  690M   3% /tmp
    /dev/sda8             231G  5.7G  214G   3% /usr
    /dev/sda6              30G  1.8G   26G   7% /var
    
    As you can see home is about 90% full. This is a centos 5 box. Can someone help me in resizeing /dev/sda8 to say 190gb and give the rest to /dev/sda5?

    Thanks!

    In case someone comes up with a similar issue, heres how we fixed it. cPanel has an interesting feature. Any folder with the prefix "home" is considered a home folder. Under "Server Configuration" you can tell it what you want to be the default home directory. I created /usr/home and then I clicked "rearrange accounts" under account management. Then, you select the account, and /usr/home was an available place for me to move it to. This was a very smooth move, sites experienced next to no downtime.

    Thanks cpanel!
