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:
- 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:
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:
- In your admin cp, select L.Servers in the E.MANAGER menu.
- 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.
