    I'm running cPanel/WHM 11.52.x on CentOS 7.1 .

    I'm experiencing an odd behavior while creating new accounts in WHM... Instead of the new directories going directly under /home, in my new/odd case here, they're instead going to /home/firstsite/public_html/secondsite (instead of /home/secondsite).

    After I created my firstsite... I created a new mount point (via fstab) on a new virtual disk, mounted at /home/firstsite/public_html. That seems to working fine... except for this situation that the WHM new-account-creation-scripts seem to have become confused that my new /home is /home/firstsite/public_html instead of the plain ol /home.

    Has anyone also experienced this odd behavior? Is there anyway to tell WHM (reset a pointer) that /home is at /home... not /home/firstsite/public_html?

    Using the standard WHM/gui scripts... all of my new sites are being created in the wrong place.

    Any ideas?

    Hello :)

    You can browse to:

    "WHM Home » Server Configuration » Basic cPanel & WHM Setup"

    Change the "Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations" option to a blank value and save the changes to disable this feature.

    Thank you.
