WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

In the default H-Sphere configuration, user homes are located in /hsphere/local/home. In some situations, you may want to add more directories for user homes, for instance:

  • You need to add a new hard drive. In this case you must mount the new HDD partition next to the existing home directory:
    /hsphere/local/home2/
  • You have web and Unix RealServer running on the same box, but would like to keep their user homes in different directories. In this case you must create a directory for RealServer user homes:
    /hsphere/local/realhome/

You can't add directories for user homes outside /hsphere/local/ subtree, because this is where apache suexec is configured to run users' cgi scripts.

To add a directory for user homes:

  1. In your admin cp, select L.Servers in the E.MANAGER -> Servers menu.
  2. Select the server you've added the directory for, and at the bottom of the page that appears enter the name of the new directory.

As a result of this procedure, old user homes will remain functional in their old location, and new user homes will be created in the new directory regardless of the plan.
