Expanding space (including more HDD ownCloud)


#1

Hi,

First off all, sorry for my english.

My problem comes when i want to include another hard drive on my owncloud server and use both of them to store information. Right now I store the data in "var/www/html/data" on a hard drive with 500GB and would like to install a second hard drive with 2TB in order to add to the current 500gb those 2TB but without using the app external storage. External storage creates a folder in the users cloud but i´m looking for a solution that makes owncloud belives that only 1 hard drive is installed in order to permit expandig the cloud without space limits. Would I have to mount the new HDD in the current folder data in some special way?

Thank you very much

Hi,

moving to the Miscellaneous category as this is more an operating system question.

Would I have to mount the new HDD in the current folder data in some special way?

Yes, exactly. You need to mount that new HDD into the existing data dir on OS level.
