    I hope I've chosen correct board to ask my question. My problem is:

    1. My /home directory was 100% full, and sites went down.
    2. I purchased second HDD, and mounted as /home2 (unfortunately I do not have LVM).
    3. I used Account rearragement to move account from /home/account_name, to /home2/account_name
    4. Physically it worked well, account is on /home2, but cPanel still says it is in /home, therefore site is not working, as it is pointing to wrong directory :(

    Field with directory is not editable....I thought I can move site back to home using terminal, and then try migration again, but now in /home there is not enough space to do this.

    How can I fix this ? Is there an option (maybe in terminal) to make cPanel point to correct directory ?

    It's important to note that there is no command line equivalent to the option to rearrange an account in WHM. Is data associated with the account still in the /home partition, or is it just a symbolic link? Some users prefer to backup the account, terminate it, and then restore it on the new partition.

    Thank you.
