    hello ia have a small problem concernig the disk usage... for the moment thr isp monitor looks like this:

    Filesystem Type Size Used Available Use% Mounted on
    ext4 50G 15G 33G 31% /
    tmpfs tmpfs 7.8G 0 7.8G 0% /dev/shm
    /dev/md127p1 ext4 485M 49M 411M 11% /boot
    ext4 1.8T 1.8G 1.7T 1% /home

    everithing i have inside the var/www/ is directed to root mapper...
    wasn t this supposed to be in to the home device ???
    for the moment i have inside the /home directory only 2 users with some gaming servers .....

    am i forced to change the sites and ftp install directives into the home directory in order to fill /dev/mapper/vg_s1-lv_home instead of root ???

    are there any settings i need to make in Centos so the disk used will be /dev/mapper/vg_s1-lv_home ??

    thank you

    mount is the answer :)


    Just to make sure I understand your problem correctly:

    You have /var/www on your 50 GB large root partition and instead you want it on the 2TB large one, correct?

    If so, that shouldn't be a problem. The shell command you are looking for is mount .

    You can create a new directory (say "/home/www") on the 2TB partition, then use something like "mount --bind olddir newdir" (OR --rbind OR --move) to "redirect" /home/www to /var/www.

    Also, I'd suggest you move your data from /var/www to /home/www first and only then use mount on empty /var/www. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to (easily) access the data there. If you need to take the changes back, use umount.

    Good luck.

    thank you very much for the reply that s exactky what i will do, i will bind vae/www to home/www to avoid any other changes in the directoryes, i already have bussiness clients that i don`t think will want to wait any changes i want to make from now on :)
    thank you very much for the suggestion.

    Good luck. And make backups, they usually pay off ;)
