How do we configure another /home directory partition on a cPanel server

1. Add the new hard-drive to the server

2. Format it and mount it as /home2.

3. There are two options to utilize /home2 partition in cPanel.

Edit /etc/wwwacct.conf and set HOMEDIR as /home2.

OR

Edit /etc/wwwacct.conf and set HOMEMATCH as /home*.

Afterwards all the new accounts will be created on /home or /home2 depending upon the amount of the free space.
