    I am currently deciding over two different spec servers. If I had a server with two hard drives, would it be possible to create accounts on both. e.g. allow the main hdd to get to 60% or so capacity, and all new accounts from there would be made on the second hdd?

    These are the two options:

    P4 2.40GHz, 1GB DDR, 300GB SATA HDD
    P4 2.60GHz HT, 1GB DDR, 2x 80GB HDD

    Obviously the second has a performance advantage with the faster cpu and HT, but is it possible, or would it be easy to have accounts made on both of the drives, or would the single drive server be easier?

    This is taken from the whm/cpanel setup page so as long as the default is set to a prefix of the user directories then cpanel will load balacne the mutli user directories

    as far as one way being better than the other I really don't see that much advantage either way

    my suggestion would be to get the dual 80 drives and mirror them with raid1
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
