    Hello.In whm
    Main >> Server Configuration >> Basic cPanel/WHM Setup

    Home Directory Prefix
    Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations. This option only takes one value. A blank value disables this feature.

    Examples: home matches /home, /home2, /newhome, /usr/home, /anythingwith/homeinit

    But new dir with name like home* I can not see in WHM if I try change home dir for some account.
    How can I create addon home dir to hosting on server?
    Thank you.

    These additional home directories must be partitions - they cannot be regular directories on the system.

    Also, cPanel/WHM will always use the home directory with the most available disk space for new accounts.

    The proper technical term is "mount point" not partition. Mount points can represent:

    • a physical partition or slice
    • a remote network drive/system
    • a bind/nullfs mount
    • a loop-back file

    All of which can be used if they match the Home Directory Prefix.

    Since a directory is required as the mount point the label "Home Directory Prefix" is correct. The description however can use some clarity to denote that the matching only operates on directories that are mount points.
