Adding a disc
To add a VPS server disk, create a ticket to the billing department. Next, you need to restart the virtual server. Only then the changes will be applied.
Preparing a disk in Linux
To prepare a disk in Linux, you need to create a partition and filesystem, mount the disk, and create an entry in the /etc/fstab file. To do this, you need to know what the disks are called on your system. Typically this is vd* or xvd*. We recommend you clarify the data on disks using this instruction.
Here we will consider preparing the vdc disk.
Creating a partition
To create a disk using the fdisk utility, run:
Press n to create a new partition.
Then press p and select the partition type.
Next press Enter for other parameters.
Finally press w to save your changes.
File system creation
To create a file system (for example EXT4) enter:
Mount the disk
To create a new directory, enter:
Next, mount the disk to this directory:
mount -o barrier=0 /dev/vdb1 /mnt/disk-2
Now, when writing information to the disk-2 directory, it will be saved to the new disk.
Creating an entry in the /etc/fstab file
The binding of the disk to the directory must be preserved even after the operating system restart. To do this, run:
echo "/dev/vdb1 /mnt/disk-2 ext4 barrier=0 0 1" >> /etc/fstab
An entry will be added to the /etc/fstab file and the disk will be fully operational.
Removing a disc
In the configuration file /etc/fstab, remove the line with the file system of the disk.
