    I've got a server with two drives in it - a 160 GB and a 500 GB - and I'd like to move a majority of the user files to the larger 500 GB drive. What can I safely move and still have ISPConfig function?

    On a related note, I've been looking for a listing of what files are installed where on the hard drive. I can't find one anywhere. Does someone have a link to the file system layout after a standard install?

    You can move everything to the other disc as long as you make sure the moved files are mounted to the same location ..


    /dev/sda = 160GB
    /dev/sdb = 500GB

    If you format sdb and copy the whole /home dir to sdb you need to edit the /etc/fstab file and add a line that tells linux that /home can now be found on /dev/sdb

    I just need to move /home then?

    Thank you.

    /home is not what I want to move. To move user files from ISPConfig to the larger drive I need to move /var/www

    Well i would start with copying instead of moving (just to have a backup if all fails ;-))

    can you post the content of the file /etc/fstab ?
