Change Datastore Drive

Datastore can be configured to use a different drive.

At times, the Insufficient disk space alert may be displayed. The default disk space allocation may not be sufficient to host all configured sites. A Datastore can be moved to a larger and faster hard drive such as Solid State Drives (SSD) or be assigned to free space on the main drive.

Command to determine disks present. Think of this as the physical disks present in the system (1TB Western Digital Drive, 500GB Seagate Drive, etc.).

sudo fdisk -l | grep Disk


Command to determine partitions inside a disk. Think of it as logical drives (Example: Drive C:, Drive D:, etc.).

sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda


If the free space is not automatically configured and available in the Datastore Settings, configure the Datastore by running the following commands:

sudo /etc/wanos/wanos-fdisk sdx
sudo reboot
sudo mkfs.ext3 /dev/sdxy
sudo reboot

Where x is the target drive e.g. sda and y is the partition number created by wanos-fdisk e.g. sda2

Finally, set the Datastore through Wanos web user interface via Configure > System Settings > System Settings.
