    Is there a thread describing the move of client data to another(larger) disk(partition)?
    What I have found so far is I have to move:
    /var/lib/mysql (or parts of it?)
    I want to move client data to a separate data storage (my smartarray disks), where the data can grow and not affect ISPconfig "server space".
    The smartarray is connected to the server by SCSI cable and will show up as one (large RAID5) disk.
    If, in the future, I need to change to even larger disks, I beleive the procedure might be:
    1. changing the slave server disks to larger disks and copy data from the master.
    2. when disks are up and running on the slave server,
    3. change disks in the master and copy data from slave.
    Am I on the right track or, hopefully not, on very thin ice?

    After new searches I found this post, answering part of my question above,
    Different disk for /var/www
    I am in the same situation with a fresh install and so far no users or clients.
    Do I need to do something with "...usrjquota=aquota.user,,jqfmt=vfsv0
    ..." or anything about quota at all?
    Is the procedure the same with /var/vmail?
    And what about mysql, howto move it without destroying anything for the future? For example if an update is installed?
    Is this correct: how-to-change-mysql-data-directory

    I come so far that I understand how to move
    /var/www and /var/vmail
    not rocket science when you realize you need one partition for each directory.

    But plz,
    am I really the only idiot here to not understand how to proceed with moving
    mysql in a proper way. I mean proper/clean so nothing is freaked out later on
    by an update of OS, php, ISPconfig or mysql itself.
    Please show me a link or site where this is already described.
