    Hi there,

    I hope someone can help here with a strange problem.

    I have a server with two account on it, running fine. Let's call them acc1 and acc2.

    I now mounted an nfs server filesystem on home/acc2. Please don't ask why I'm doing that :cool:

    Anyway, now if I try to create a new acc on the server, for some reason, cpanel tries to create the acc under /home/acc2/. This of course fails because of wrong permissions.

    I read some other threads about problem with NFS and cpanel, but most of them were a few years old.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Cheers,
    Bjorn

    Hello Bjorn,

    Please change the following in WHM > Basic cPanel & WHM Setup area:

    You would change it from home default to be blank entirely. This is what is causing the new mount at /home/acc2 to be detected as a usable location for new accounts to be created.

    Thanks Tristan,

    Once again you helped me with a perfect straight to the point solution.

    The account is now created fine under /home :D

    Thanks again,
    Bjorn
