Default Installing aditional Hard Disk

Hi,

I am running ISPConfig 2.2.1 on FedoraCore4 system.

Recently I bought one more hard disk, and I want to add it to my server.

My question is:

- how to partition and format that HD (do I have to use fedora core instalation disks utility for partition/formation) or there's another way.

- how to make it recognized by ISPConfig - make it avaiable for hosting onto it (together with allready installed disk)

The linux commands are "cfdisk" or "fdisk" for partitioning and "mkfs" for formatting. Make sure you read the manpages before you use them. If you run these commands accidently on the first harddisk, you may erase your server!

Thats a bit more complicated. Did you use LVM (Logical Volume Management) as you installed your server?

No, I followed your recommedations for perfect fedora 4 install.

What's better LVM or NoLVM ?

BTW Is it safe that I upgrade to FedoraCore5 using yum ?

Hm.

I mounted it as:

mkdir /second-disk
mount -t ext3 /dev/hdb1 /second-disk

And guess what?

ISPConfig allready see it!?

Is that ok? It seems it is not complicated, or I done something wrong?

Thats OK so far. What is the purpose of this Disk? Backup or do you want to put the website directories there?

This doesn't work because ISPConfig creates web sites in /home/www or /var/www or whatever you specified during the installation.

If you don't plan to add additional hard disks later on, it doesn't matter. But if you do, then you should use LVM.
