How To Add More Drives

ownCloud - Aug 2 2012
Question:Hi Guys,

Please could someone give me some advise or headway on adding internal hard drives to my owncloud server....I am a complete newb to this owncloud....I have already connected the hard drives and partitioned them thru ubuntu, but just dont know how to attach them to owncloud....
Thanks a mill...

Answer:I have the same question for my Ubuntu server 12.04 box.

I found this but i dont know if it works i havent tested it yet:
found here -> http://forum.linuxbasix.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1192

I dont know how it affects security but t works. Im keeping this local for now anyway. Let me know what you think or any input you might have.

Added the the head drive to fstab:

/dev/sda1 /mnt/owncloud ext4 rw,user 1 1

Created the folder on the new hard drive to store the ownCloud data

sudo mkdir /mnt/owncloud/owncloud_data
sudo chown www-data:www-data /mnt/owncloud/owncloud_data

The following was done in root because I found it difficult to move around the file system with my normal user account.

I did a tar backup of the data directory structure since I did not have much in my data folder I did not compress the tar backup.

cd /usr/share/owncloud/data/
tar cf /mnt/owncloud/owncloud_data.tar *

Verified the tar backup

tar tf /mnt/owncloud/owncloud_data.tar

Deleted the data folder

cd ..
rm -Rf data/

Created a symbolic link to create to the folder on the hard drive

ln -s /mnt/owncloud/owncloud_data/ data

Went back into my data directory and put the files back.

cd data
tar xf /mnt/owncloud/owncloud_data.tar

It would be nice from the owncloud interface to just choose the location of the disk/s add apply finish.

Someones professional detailed answer would be nice.
