    Hi.

    We have 1x256GB SSD and 2x1TB HDD on WHM, and we are trying to figure out how we can set some accounts in SSD and the others in HDD

    our server is in centOS 7

    - First, you must mount /home to SSD and mount /home2 to HDD.
    - Then, once you want to create new account to SSD, you must change default home directory to home through WHM:

    - Once you want to create new account to HDD, you must change default home directory to home2 through WHM:

    Good luck!
